I was surprised to see , in the shot of Goodramgate , that the ugly "modern" building which currently houses Tesco Express was actually there in 1950. I thought it was 1960s ?

I don't think that photo is dated correctly... the street light on the wall of what is now Boots on Kings Square didn't go up until 1962 earliest as part of a bulk scheme to relight the city away from tungsten light into new-fangled mercury fluorescent lighting

Rationing ended, and the stultifying social stratification which had crippled class-obsessed British society began to loosen as the 60s began.

People forget this kind of thing when they worship the past, because they always assume they'd be the ones in charge. Any time in history was great if you were rich and/or powerful.

The reason it no longer looks like your description is because society became more equal. Which didn't for much for the 'neatness', but was far better for most people to live in.

I think you mean "no non-white faces". You can't tell that the people in the photos are not foreign - in the 1950s there were plenty of former prisoners of war who had not returned to their countries of birth. And most of the non-white faces in York belong to people who are British.

I was twelve in 1950, and life was good even though it was a struggle for mum and dad.. We lived in a terrace house in a so called "slum" area off Holgate Road, the house was spotless and the people great, all looking out for each other. Don't tell me this was not the best time to be a Yorkie and English. When I look at England today I wonder what went wrong.

Lovely dating there! The photo must've been pulled from the article on the strength of that, which is odd because it's still entitled "22 striking picture" though now there are, of course, 23. Twenty three? Good old, quirky old York!

Surely you mean "pedal". And did York have any one way streets. In those days? Recent legislation has given Local highway Authorities the power to make a street two way for cyclists via a simple exemption plate under the "no entry" sign. Mind you that's been the norm elsewhere in Europe for yonks.

On the very infrequent times that I travel by cycle, I would not for my own safety, ride into oncoming vehicle traffic.
