On a historical note, the area has been the birthplace of famous city figures, such as Joseph Rank, who helped build the food empire Rank Hovis McDougall, born in March 1854 at his father's flour mill in Holderness Road.
Rank's son, J Arthur, would become just as well known in his own right by founding the Rank Organisation, which produced many popular films, such as the Carry On series.
The Rank mill is one of the many historical features that remains on the road and is now in use as a pub.
