Ships in the Sky : the Co-op Connection - a project by Esther Johnson


Ships in the Sky : the Co-op Connection

A collaboration with the Ships in the Sky project in Hull - a social history arts project.

The project is inspired by Alan Boyson's colossal THREE SHIPS that floats above the entrance to the post-war former Hull & East Riding Co-operative Society department store, later a BHS. The building has had many lives – a department store, an indoor market, a dance hall, a music venue and the nightclubs: The Skyline Ballroom, Bailey's and Romeo's & Juliet's.

This booklet brings together assorted ephemera and artefacts associated with its time as a Co-op and offers a nostalgic celebration of this wonderful building.
