Map of Hull circa 1832

This map of Hull shows the town (it wasn't a city until 1899) as it was ca.1830. Junction (now Prince's) Dock, started 1827, is shown, but not the Hull and Selby Railway (opened 1836). The hand-coloured engraving is believed to have been prepared to accompany the Act of Parliament which permitted Hull to extend its boundaries around 1835. Before this date the town's control applied only within the line of the former Town Walls. Streets outside this line were controlled by other parishes. After the extension Hull had control within the entire parishes of Sculcoates, Drypool and Holy Trinity, as well as part of the parish of Sutton.
