And finally to York; and a picture probably taken not that long after the 1877 station was built. It clearly shows the shiny new Queens Road and its bridge as referred to in an earlier blog (read again).
fbb has had these two tomes on his shelf for a year or so and it was another (failed) attempt at a domestic clear-up that prompted this renewed interest. The 1604 pages will doubtless produce a wealth of bloggable material over the coming months (years? decades?). You have been warned. Incidentally, copies of the two-volume bound set are readily available on-line at around £30 depending on condition. A Christmas present suggestion?
There is also a website dedicated to the publication (here).
