Richard's Birthday in York

The birthday boy on the city wall! After going to New York for his birthday last year, it was funny to do 'Old York' for the occasion this year!
The Shambles

We had mulled wine & hot ginger to warm up before dinner at Lendal Cellars and a ghost walk tour.

The York Castle Museum--it had nothing to do with castles, but it did have this lovely recreated Victorian street


This was the uniform for "Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service" during World War II (very cool to see how it compares to Grandma's Cadet Nurse uniform!)

The museum also had a cool 1960's section with all sorts of day-to-day objects--clothes, candy, food, furniture, records, books, and even a box of Durex condoms. This is an early Paddington Bear--his eyes used to be very creepy!

The Spirograph was invented by a Leeds local!
