A 44-page full colour book published in association with SHIPS in the SKY research. 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.
