The York

 

 


 

The York was situated at 59 Bramley Road, on the corner with Blechynden Street.
 
I lived in 40 Blechynden Street opposite The York. The York was very quiet during the week, but Turning out time on Saturday was always a ‘lively’ affair.
Fights would ensue without fail so it was always something to watch although sometimes a touch Bloody as it was in the days of cut throat razors.
For a short period of time my Dad opened the shop which was attached to the house. He worked at Whitleys and often managed to procure seconds which they could not sell. I will always remember him selling a batch of Chamber Pots and as the York turned out several people came out clutching their Pots, some wags with them on their heads.
