International Women’s Week – Talk at St Olave’s Church Hall March 6th 2012

Posted on: February 12th, 2012 by admin No Comments

I will give a late late lunchtime talk about my Book Just One Street 1-2pm on Tuesday March 6th 2012 at St Olave’sChurch Hall on Marygate lane (the snicket that runs from Marygate carpark to Marygate.) The talk forms part of the International Women’s week events and helps celebrate York 800.

The talk will inlcude archive photographs of the area when the street was first built and talk about the big difference in the occupancy of the street at the beginning of the last century. It was part of a development that included Queen Anne’s Road built between 1895 and 1901. As this is part of International Women’s Week I will draw particular attention to the differences in women’s lives. The book Just One Street tells the story of the street’s origins and details of its occupants from the census returns of 1901 and 1911. It also gathers together stories of 30 neighbours interviewed in 2010.

£2 admission on the door includes tea/ coffee. Feel free to bring sandwiches if you are on a late lunch break – Any profits go to the church roof appeal. (Thieves stole lead from the roof last autumn much damage has been done, including damage to the Church organ.)
