Howdenshire History

Old Photos of East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire

These pages contain a selection of old photographs from the Goole/Howden area and also from further afield in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. There are old pictures of streets, families, pubs, shops, schools, bands, sports teams, ships, railways and much more.

I have many more old photos dating from the 1890s to the 1980s and so this section of the website keeps expanding! Please do get in touch with any specific picture requests as this website only shows a fraction of my old photograph collection.


Goole, Howden, Eastrington and Newport all have their own section as I have collected so many old photographs of each place.

The local towns and villages section covers places within, roughly, a 25 mile radius of Howden/Goole. It includes the Howdenshire, Marshland and Isle of Axholme areas which lie within East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Photos are listed alphabetically and cover the following places:

Local railways also have their own section which covers the following places:
