More about this scene


Caption for York, Guildhall 1885: 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.
