Sur­vey cov­ered coun­ties that no longer ex­ist

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

I read about the Ca­role Nash sur­vey in the 16 March is­sue and noted that North Hum­ber­side came in 25th place and South Hum­ber­side was 33rd. There are no such places. As a county, Hum­ber­side ex­isted only from 1974 to 1996, and was di­vided for ge­o­graph­i­cal pur­poses into North and South, al­though while it ex­isted there was only one ad­min­is­tra­tive county, Hum­ber­side. North Hum­ber­side was ab­sorbed back into the East Rid­ing of York­shire in 1996 and South Hum­ber­side be­came part of North-East Lin­colnshire. The sur­vey is, there­fore, com­pletely mean­ing­less! Nor­man E Hawkes, Hessle, East Rid­ing of York­shire
