KINGSTON UPON HULL ANLABY ROAD (North side) Former Immigrant Station and railway platform

GV II Former immigrant station, now a social club, and railway platform. 1871. By Thomas Prosser. For the North Eastern Railway Co. Extended 1881. Altered late C20.

MATERIALS: yellow brick with ashlar dressings and hipped slate roofs.

PLAN: L-plan.

EXTERIOR: Single storey; thirteen windows, all top hung casements. Off-centre late C20 door flanked by windows, two blocked. At the rear, a railway platform with renewed hipped canopy on cast-iron columns. To south and east, ashlar screen walls with segment-arched openings.

HISTORY: this building is of historical importance because it was used exclusively to handle immigrant passengers from north-west Europe to America. They travelled by sea to Hull, then by train to Liverpool, where they embarked for America. For health reasons, amongst others, they were segregated from other passengers. This makes the station part of the heritage of many Americans.

The Immigrant Station or waiting room had facilities for the emigrants to meet the ticket agents, wash, use the toilet and take shelter from the weather. It has estimated that 2.2 million migrants, chiefly from Scandinavia and the Baltic, passed through Hull in the years 1836-1914.
