Description


Photographs from The Evelyn Collection

On a cold winter’s afternoon in January 1891 a young doctor walked out of York Railway Station to start a new life in the city. He was greeted by a view of the city walls covered in snow. Later in life he wrote ‘I fell in love with York then and have been in love with it ever since’. That doctor was William Arthur Evelyn, and, although he did not know it at the time, over the next 44 years he was to have a lasting, indelible effect on the city. We all have a lot to thank Dr Evelyn for.

The Evelyn Collection has been in the safekeeping of the Yorkshire Architectural and York Archaeological Society (YAYAS), and offers a glimpse of the unique and unequalled heritage of the City of York.

Illustrating all aspects of York life, its buildings, industry and heritage rarely, if ever, seen before, this book features a wide selection of images from the Collection which are published for the first time.

Written by two council members of the YAYAS, the images are part of an important and unique contribution to the social history of York, Yorkshire and England.
