a quick look at the East Riding

An archive trip to Beverley and Hull, East Yorkshire (or Riding, as the locals still call it), this time.


Beverley Minster













relief in the pavement of one of the early fourteenth century stone carvings of musicians in the Minster.






One of the many Georgian houses, on Butcher Row, with added 'outdoor art'.












Carving of Disraeli, 'the Political Cheap Jack'.







Lamp-post, presumably originating from a Lighting and Watching Act.








This pair are on a church wall in Hull.
