Rymer Street added, Redeness St updated

Thanks to responses to the questionnaire we’ve been able to add a page for Rymer Street, with Trev A’s description of his home, and we’ve added Trevor Keeler’s memories to accompany the images of Redeness Street.

If streets are missing from the list in the menu it’s because of a lack of information and photos. So far most streets have only the photos from the city archives.

If you’re able to add to this information, please have a look at the questionnaire, or add a comment on the relevant pages, or you can also contact us via the contact form.

If you’d like to be kept updated on additions to this website, please join the mailing list.

    My nanna Millicent Neale and her sister Betty were born at 54 Redeness st in 1913 and 1923, respectively. I think they went to Bilton St school

      my grandparents lived at 41 Redeness street in the 30s and 40s. They were John (Jack) and Lilian Horseman. Their 2 daughters Evelyn ans Aggie lived with them. In 1939, on the death of my mother my father, Stan, sent me to live with them. He was on war work and couldn’t care for me. I used to play with Mrs Herberts granddaughter. I remember Bilton Street school, and the night the unexploded bomb fell on the gasometer at the end of the road and everyone running. We took shelter in Mr Whitehead’s house. I believe he was the local cobbler I remember going to the pictures with my aunt, and being taken to see the soldiers marching through York. so many different stories and your site brought them all back.
