Before I dash off for the week - here's Low Petergate, York.
Usual thing: out of focus and 25% shading vanished - I'll replace this draft image when it's been through the Giclée scanner/printer.

The present Minster, which you can just see in the background, stands on the site previously occupied by the Roman praetorium (encampment). It was here in AD306 that Constantine the Great was proclaimed emperor.
This old street is built on the original main road to the fort - the via principalis.
See you in a week! ..... Saint Swithen's Day tomorrow
If it rains on St. Swithen's Day, then it will rain for 40 days and 40 nights!! But hey! Who'd notice the difference is the UK at the moment
