Aspects of York 1, is the first in the well established and respected Aspects series to feature the City of York, though the editor is no stranger to the city, having previously written a number of articles on the City and a City guide. Aspects of York 1 contains 11 contributions from new and established local history writers. Aspects of York 1, gives us such historic gems as: 'Mad, Bad and Dangerous', the story of Jonathan Martin, who set York Minster on fire in 1829, while we also have A History of the Bar Convent, which is still flourishing in the City. The editor himself has penned a guide to the 'Bronze Plaques of York', with brief histories of each, while Alma Brunton introduces a number of the arts and sciences pioneered in the City.The story of Thomas Cook, not the travel agent, but the precision lensmaker of international renown, sits comfortably beside the story of Elvington airfield and its effect on life in wartime York and the development of the now famous air museum. We are taken back to the 1930's, when collecting birds eggs was an integral part of rambling and walking in the countryside around York and we revisit a childhood spent in York and Haxby during the years of the great depression. These and many other contributions go to make Aspects of York 1, a must for the dedicated researcher, the armchair historian or those who simply wish to find out a little more about the City and its history.
