More about this scene

The Victorians loved York, and before the railway came, travellers could get here either by stage or mail-coach; there was also a steamboat service to and from London. The opening to the left of Todds leads to College Street and St William's College. The shops to the left were demolished in 1902-3 to make way for Deangate.

In the early & mid 50's as a lad I spent my weekends working in the boatyard by the bridge. As you look at the picture it was downstream of Kendal bridge on the left. Access was through the arch on this side of the bridge. A selection of rowboats & a motorboat river cruiser that did afternoon runs to Bishopthorpe Palace. A start to a life of over 40 years at sea or involved in the maritime world that included over 22 years in the maritime branch of the Army. Oh happy days.
