More about this scene

The River Ouse flows past the embattled rear of the fifteenth century Guildhall, built in 1446. It was in this building that the celebration banquet marking the opening of the York & North Midland Railway was held, followed by a grand ball at the Mansion House. The building was bombed by the Luftwaffe in 1941, during one of the retaliatory raids for the RAF's destruction of the ancient city of Lubeck. It was restored to its former glory in the 1960s.

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.
