It was our last day in York. We explored the York Castle Museum, which included displays about life in England and York from the Victorian age to the 60’s. There was a good display about the first World War, and how it affected York. Did you know there was such a thing as embroidered post cards? Women near the front made them to sell to soldiers to send home. Very pretty. There was also a show up about fashion and how we shape our bodies. It started out with a history of fashion, with historical examples, and then moved on to how we’ve eaten and exercised for the past few centuries.
We also spent some time shopping this afternoon. I had a particular wish to try on cardigans at Marks and Spenser, so here I am from that fashion show:
Above is the house we’ve been staying in while in York. Our room is the one with the two arched windows.
