York and its People


This gallery is my “York and Its People Gallery” which portray the life of ordinary people visiting, working and living in Walled City of York. It is my hope that through these galleries I will share with you a sense of the history, vibrancy, tranquility and the pure fun of York.

Interspaced in all my York galleries are pictures of the street Newspaper Vendors which I use as a date reference, in the same way that H. G. Wells did in his Time Machine novel with the shop Manikin. Like the Manikin who mark the march of time with its ever changing fashion, the Newspaper Vendors do the same with their ever changing headline bulletin boards.

York has always fascinated me; although not local residence I used to live close enough to visit it quite regularly. Its rich historic fabric and its vibrant community snared me from an early age, which even though I no longer live close, still calls me back for regular pilgrimages.

The Minister is the heart of York and dominates the landscape from which ever direction you approach the city. There has been a Minster in York since 647 AD and through the ages it is and always has been the Christian cultural centre of the region.

I have found through the years that no matter what time of the year you choose to visit York, there is always something new to see or do. The city itself is maze of vibrant bustling streets, interspaced with little nooks and passages, which like the wardrobe in the C. S. Lewis “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” takes you to some extraordinary destinations.
