Film Set from the 50s – Well Not Quite

Wherever I go I seem to assess places and scenery as to whether it would fit into a film location – and it is all the more appealing when there appears something or somewhere that seems to fit the bill perfectly.

On a trip this January day to the famous City of Hull with my family, among other things we decided to go to the Hull Museum right down in the Old City of Hull – and the old City is very attractive architecturally and maybe should – or maybe has – been used in film location filming. The only example I can think of was a film, in recent years about the Queen who reputedly, as Princess Elizabeth along with her sister Princess Margaret slipped out of the Palace to enjoy the VE Day Celebrations – and the old City of Hull replicated central London in those days – as this story was re told on film.

It was titled The Queen’s Big Night Out  but I don’t think that the film got much publicity  – it’s release was only three of years ago in 2015.

 Anyway Hull Museum, first let me say, is very well worth a visit – and once inside along with so much, there is quite a long Street set up just as it would be in the 50s.   The Pictures below speak far better than I can – but to me,  depict street scenes straight from a film of the era.
