hullness stickers

Visit the Arc exhibition stand at various events over the summer for a hullness sticker.
The stickers feature the King Billy statue and the classic hull corporation white telephone box. Interestingly this iconic style of telephone box called the K6 was designed by a bastion of the architectural establishment in the early 20th century Sir Giles Gilbert Scott (1880-1960) who also designed Battersea Power Station. Giles' father George Gilbert Scott junior (1839 -1897) designed the large victorian 'villas' on Salisbury Street here in Hull. George Gilbert Scott senior (1811 - 1878) also left an impressive legacy of buildings including St Pancras Station and hotel, London.
