Aerial View, Burmantofts Street
1963 This aerial view shows a mixture of old and new, with tracks of waste ground which had previously been the site of hundreds of back-to-back houses. Richmond Hill is in the foreground, with York Road running from left to right just below the centre. On the left side is the junction with Burmantofts Street which runs at an angle towards the right. St James's Hospital is here (now Beckett Street) a new white building stands out. Opposite is a wooded area which is Beckett Street Cemetery. In the centre of the photo is the new Ebor estate.
