Hull has a striking collection of statues each telling a different aspect of Hull’s history. There are the traditional statues depicting Wilberforce, Marvell and de la Pole and more recent ones such as Truelove and Voyage highlighting Hull’s maritime traditions. Neil Hadlock’s statue of a transmigrant family informs us of the port’s significant international role as a gateway to a new life for those fleeing poverty and persecution in Europe at the turn of the 19th century. The city has also seen the rise of strong, independent women none more famous than Amy Johnson, who in 1930 was the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia. Quite rightly she has a statue outside the Prospect Centre which describes her pioneering exploits.
