Memories of Coltman Street
7 August 2012
BBC TWO’s Restoration Home series is
following the renovation of a listed house in Coltman Street, Hull
– and would love to hear from people with memories of it.
The show, presented by Caroline Quentin and
made by Remarkable Television, documents the restoration of
historic buildings but also tells the past story of the houses and
their former residents.
The property in Coltman Street was built in
1851 and was once the home of Christopher Pickering, trawler owner
and the man who gave the city Pickering Park, among other
things. In 1921 the house became The City of Hull School
Clinic and remained a clinic after the foundation of the National
Health Service at the end of World War 2.
The producers would like to hear from people
who worked at or were treated at the clinic, especially anyone with
photographs of the building. If you have any memories or
interesting stories about the building in Coltman Street, please
