80. Queen Victoria's Monument in the Guildhall to mark her diamond jubilee is very similar to the statue erected by Scarborough in the town hall grounds.

81. Scarcroft Road befere 1918. The road looks to be in a very poor state of repair.

82. The inner porch of St. William's College showing the fine leaded windows and beautiful old stone work which has been so well preserved. This building in Oglethorpe was once the residence of thirty-six parsons connected with York Minster.

83. The Merchants Hall, Fossgate, is one of the most interesting relics of mediaeval Vork. The first building on the site was erected in 1357. The woodwork of the screen as you enter the chapel dates from 1490. The place was stripped at the Reformation and assumed its present form in 1667. The old records of the Mercer's Cornpany are still preserved there.

84. Monk Bar is the tallest of the Vork Bars. The arch goes back to Norman times, but the superstructure is of the fourteenth century. The old portcullis was of oak with iron teeth for raising and lowering it. Here we see both, an early car and a pony and trap which have come through the Bar.

85. This shows Monk Bar from the City Walls. In 1921, by mounting the walls to the south of the Bar, it was possible to see the newly excavated corner tower of Roman Y ork.

86. York has always had strong military associations and in the period before the First World War Military Sunday was marked by a parade and a service at the Minster. Here we see the officers just having a break and looking very splendid in full dress uniform complete with their swords.

87. Military Sunday 1911. The band in full dress uniform leads the parade from the Minster. I wonder if that is a mounted policeman on the white horse on the right controlling the crowds?

88. Military Sunday 1912 showing the crowds 1ining the route to watch the parade. These so1diers in the front must be guardsmen as they are all complete with busby's. On the right is a mounted polleeman controlling the crowds.
