Hull Triple Trawler Disaster 1968 newsreel

August 3, 2015


This brilliant little collage from the British Pathe archive gives a marvellous insight into the times in which my book, The Headscarf Revolutionaries (BARBICAN PRESS, 2015) is set. Notice how crowded the docks were. Also later in the newsreel observe the emotions on trawler safety campaigner Mrs Bilocca's face. I use this as part of a PowerPoint in a lecture I premiered at the Hull History Centre in June.
