THIS IS HUNS LAND - BEWARE

Shifting from yesterday's Urban environment to another urban setting - the Hulltoon.
The scrawl on the wall says it all!

  4. That's a great image for the hull archive. No facebook / MSN / Txt message threats here, proper word on the street BEWARE. I like it. Says what it does on the tin. The question is, was it more dangerous walking down that part of the Hull then (77-83?) or now...

    It was proclaimed a very long time ago...........and pray tell why did he retire ?(I know the reason,do you?)..it was nothing to do with time up!!!

  9. More dangerous back in the day if you were in your teens / 20's and it was late at night or after the football for sure. More dangerous now though if you are a Pensioner thanks to junkie muggers.

  10. Can't recall if we were in a chipper or a taxi rank, but one night inside some premises up the Hulltoon in the mid 70's, this drunken yobbo came in and started mouthing off. He was becoming a real pain but we all tried to ignore him. He then started to get a bit aggressive. Pointing at my mate he shouted "Hey you - kiss my feet!". This was repeated 2 or 3 times until my mate lost patience with him and replied "Tell ye what mate - you kiss my feet", and with a speedy powerful upright kick to the yobbo's kisser, knocked him out cold. Little did the guy know my mate was a Brown Belt in Karate at the time!

  11. these scrawlings wouldve been made by what I would regard as the tiny hulltoon or maybe even their prodgeny, the likes of muff, jed jackson, larry devlin etc couldnt write too well it does say something about the education system getting better.

  12. I like the fact they've used a hyphen between Hulltoon and Huns, it's just ripe for a .com to be added. Huns ahead of their time? Maybe so...

  20. Larry Devlin was an extremely skilled footballer.
    Think he could have played at a high level if he had stuck at it.

    Remember the Playpark between the multis, that was the meeting place.

    1. I met Steve 'Sting' Miller playing golf at carnoustie. He was a sound guy with a load of great stories about his hulltoon days. He laughed when I mentioned the sting is a bastard grafitti. He spoke with real affection about ralphy, bellso, gander ronni penman and the marnie bros. Said he tried to get them to play golf but they were scared what the others might say. He shared his chocolate biscuits with me on the course and bought me soup and a roll after the game. Said he retired after 34 yrs with a medical condition, but was running a five a side comp for young unemployed in hulltoon through a church group. I ended up really liking him, he can really play golf and his wife picked him up and she was much younger than him and a bit if a honey.

      one day we where in glasgow city centre and got surrounded by a team from The Gorbals 3 of us
      about 10 of them terry pulls a machette out the back of his coat and almost chopped one of their arms off... calm as you like.. handed the blade to me and said on you go its your turn....
