Old York Map 1852
« on: Jun 11 - 2014 »
This names a lot of the pubs in York back in 1852.

I've found some of Sam's, notably The Seahorse, The Kings Arms and The Burns Hotel. The Brown Cow is discussed elsewhere.

But of great interest to railway buffs, it clearly shows the layout of York Railway Station when it was a dead end within the city walls, with an Arrival Platform and a Departure Platform.

All change!

Also shown is The Paragon PH, opposite Fishergate Bar, which I think was a Sam's pub too.

The site of the Brigadier is shown as a timber yard.

I also counted no less than 25 turn-tables around the York Railway Works, including the massive one in the engine shed.

Paragon on the corner of Paragon street and Fawcett street was later the Cattle Market Inn,see post in ex pubs.
