An enchanting snapshot of life in York a century ago; a timeless treasure for anyone familiar with the city.


This book is different from other books on York. Contained within its pages are hugely appealing photographic glimpses of how people lived, worked and played in the city a century ago, images full of human history, and so much more than the usual street scenes. All of life is here: children, soldiers, blacksmiths, revellers, shopkeepers, families, and some that delight in their mystery! But all is revealed by the authors in the rich captions accompanying each picture, allowing us to view and understand York as never before.
