Part 2 of 4
Here’s the second drawing of Front Street, Acomb, cropped into smaller sections so as to get a good look at each building in turn.
It’s a colourful glance over a street in the place where I grew up. It’s also a moment to say thank you for following and reading over the years.
These were ‘former Almshouses, built around 1910 for widows and spinsters’- information courtesy of Allan T Adams who has many beautiful artworks on Flikr, including one of this building here.
No 51 is mid-18th Century. There is a little more information here on York Council’s website which includes a black and white photo of it prior to some 20th Century alterations.
The bus stop is for Acomb Post Office which has since closed.
The two remaining drawings of Front Street will follow in the New Year 2023 so in the meantime, wishing you well and my warmest Christmas greetings.
