taken 13 years ago, near to Kingston Upon Hull, England

Sign, Land of Green Ginger, Hull
Sign, Land of Green Ginger, Hull
What must be one of the most splendidly-named streets in the country has to be seen to be believed. Its derivation is unclear, but may refer to the selling of ginger in the medieval period, a corruption of the name of a prominent local merchant, or a corruption of 'Landgrave Granger', meaning a walk or pathway approaching the home of the family Landgrave. Information from Wikipedia.
The sign is on the side of this building: TA0928 : Former National Westminster Bank, Silver Street, Hull.
