I’ve been meaning to mention a fantastic film on YouTube:
York Rockers 1960s – uploaded by ‘Teddyboy53Rocker’
– in which we are transported through the streets of ‘old York’ via motorbike: what looks like East Parade in Heworth, as well as Spurriergate, High Petergate full of parked cars, etc. Includes several shots of the ordinary folk of York going about their business, including a group of women heading for the Rowntree’s factory, with its factory clock. It’s not a boring ‘tourist’ view of York – quite the opposite.
A memorable representation of ‘real York’, as it was then.
