Sailing by the Bonding Warehouse, long ago

I’ve just found this fabulous image in the York Libraries and Archives online collection.

Sail barges on floodwater, York

By the Bonding Warehouse, a long long time ago. (c) City of York Council

The Bonding Warehouse on the left, Clifford’s Tower in the distance. A flooded Ouse, a common sight. The focus of the picture is of course no longer a common sight. The image has been captioned ‘These sail barges are marooned by the floodwater near the Bonding Warehouse on Skeldergate.’
