1956, historical, on a wet, damp British day, a view along an empty Shambles, a narrow, cobbled medieval street in York, England, UK, with overhanding timber-frame buildings, some dating as far back to the fourteenth century. Once known as 'The Great Flesh Shambles', from the meat that the butchers used to display in their shop windows, the ancient narrow street is perhaps Europe's best-preserved medieval street. The name 'Shambles' is now commonly used to collectively refer to the surounding maze of narrow twisting lanes and alleys as well. A sign for the York Weavers can be seen.
