A series of unseen images shed new light on how Hull was affected by World War II.
The pictures reflect the impact of the conflict on Hull and the surrounding area, showing both ordinary people at work and some of the key figures from the war effort on visits to our region.
The brilliant photographs, unseen for decades, show how Hull came through our darkest hours
The city was one of the most bombed in the country due to its strategic importance as a port city and was referred to at the time as the "northeast town".
Almost 1,200 people were killed during the bombings with the most intense attacks taking place during the blitz of 1941.
But there are also happier occasions photographed include the visit of King George VI to Hull in August 1941 with the Queen Mother speaking to residents.
There are also pictures of the The Home Guard and the Sixth East Yorkshire Home Defence Corps in training
The pictures form part of a collectable partwork series published by the Daily Express over the next four days.
They include images showing home life in World War 2, the dark days of the Blitz and how key moments were marked on the road to peace.
The first part will be in newsagents tomorrow, Friday, October 30.
