Just come across this article in the York Press and thought that some members on here might be interested in it. Some interesting photos for BB, and the book is also for sale

Just been having a look at those photos.  "The Travelling Man" pub - was that on the York Road out of town, and about opposite Ward's the butcher ?  I believe the last licensee was Bill Wilson.  Bill was also garage foreman at the Tadcaster Police garage, first at Crabgarth by the river, and then at the new premises on Station Road.

Hi ,you are correct it was opposite Wards butchers.It became a John Smiths pub in 1896,the licence was not renewed in 1967 and a licence was granted to a new pub on Stutton road(jackdaw).In 1974 the former pub was sold to Crowther Estates Ltd and demolished soon after to be replaced with housing.
