York, Stonegate c.1960

More about this scene

Caption for York, Stonegate C1960: Here the wording on the banner has been changed to 'Ye Olde Starre Inne'. Once there would have been many of these gallows signs, as they are called, but this is the only one remaining in York. Sometimes the signs would hang so low that people would have to duck to pass by. The 17th-century inn has survived, but it has been totally altered.
