Are you ready for another stroll along memory lane in York?

Our galleries of pictures from the 1950s and 1960s proved hugely popular - so we've gone back into our archives, for pictures from the 1970s.

Here are from the early 1970s - 1970 through to 1973 inclusive. Watch this space for more from the mid-1970s to follow and then the late-70s in due course as well.
