On 18th May, 1957, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip made a visit to Hull. During their visit, the Royals toured many different areas of the city, including the Sailors' Children's Society, St Andrew’s Docks, a council estate, the University, Kingston General Hospital and the King George Dock. This film is part of the Humberside Police collection, and members of this force were responsible for security during the Queen’s visit.
This film documents the Viscount and Lady Halifax's visit to Hull in 1941. They have come to visit the city after The Blitz during World War II.

They also visit a refuge for people whose homes have been bombed and look at the worst hit sites of the city.
Made in and around Hull, this film contains footage of a street party which was held in celebration of the 1935 Jubilee. The film also includes a fancy dress competition at the Stoneferry Carnival and physical fitness displays by members of the Hull Physical Culture Club.
