York: The Way We Were
  (Enlarge)  
This fascinating look back at life in bygone York includes important events in the last 150 years of York's history including the lifting of tolls on Ouse Bridge, the opening of Lendal and Skeldergate bridges, the coming of the railway, and the inaugural electric tram to Fulford. Also featured is a chilling look at York's poverty and disease-ridden Victorian slums. Text from producer: A new DVD takes a fascinating look back at life in bygone York. It recalls important events in the last 150 years of York?s history including the lifting of tolls on Ouse Bridge, the opening of Lendal and Skeldergate bridges, the coming of the railway, and the inaugural electric tram to Fulford. These are things that we take for granted now but, as stories from the archives of the Yorkshire Evening Press show, at the time they were the cause of great celebration in the city. But there was another side to Victorian York. In poor quarters like Walmgate and Hungate thousands of people lived in abject poverty and in constant fear of diseases like cholera. As we find out, one particularly nasty epidemic has left a lasting mark on the city. The film is produced exclusively for the The Press and is narrated by Richard Vernon. SPECIAL OFFER Included with ?York The Way We Were? is a bonus film, 'The Way We Were in the 1950s'. With archive film and newsreel, this film takes a nostalgic look back at life in 1950s Britain.
