Lawrence Street starts at Walmgate Bar
an ancient gate leading east
to Hull and Roterdam
passed Russels cycle shop
and a tannery;
Tinny Dicksons making kettles
while you wait, from sheets of tin from Wales,
Tetley ,Hunts Ales, and Sam Smiths ,
next door NMU , made lorries
Uncle Joe worked there; he worked in wood
rode a Rudge motor bike which he crashed
l liked uncle Joe .He was the only drinker in the famly.
He didn't buy another.
