The Yorkshire Evening Press, known today as The Press, has been the beating heart of life in York since 1882.
Through the reporting of its journalists and the images captured by its photographers, The Press has witnessed the stories, events and changes in the city.
Now, for the first time, the images in this book – which are unavailable from any other source – are compiled to present a fascinating pictorial history of York.
Many of the images have not been seen since they were first published in the paper, and for that reason they give the reader an opportunity to indulge in some unashamed and untrammelled nostalgia, whatever their age.
Paul Chrystal is the author of around 120 books, many on York and Yorkshire. He is editor of the Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, and his work has appeared in national newspapers and he has contributed to various television and radio shows.
