Visits- Hull City of Culture, Part 4.

Tiredness had struck us but we still had things on the Hulliday list to fulfil, like The Streetlife Museum and their exhibition about cats.

It was very nice in here with lots to see and it smelled nice and oily.

After 5 minutes of holding the lever it decided I was modest. I took my hand off in the end.

The Fabulous Felines exhibition was great and it focused on the work of Violet Roberts who was a musical theatre performer and postcard artist in Hull. I liked that her postcards ‘feature comic, fashionably dressed cats.’ I had seen these postcards before but I never knew who they were by and now I do and so do you.

Mammoth. My dad found a mammoths tooth on the beach once.

By now we were failing at our list. We needed to eat, my feet needed plasters and we probably needed the toilet but weren’t sure if we did. We consulted our oracle and found that we needed to be on the other side of town in a place called The Fruit Market….
