Black & White image1st March 1907. View of the Angel Inn Yard seen from Briggate. The Angel Inn can just be seen. This Inn dates from the late 18th century but underwent alterations in the late nineteenth century. It ceased trading as an inn in 1903 but continued in use as business premises. The jewellers T.S. & H. Davis, previously in Bank Street, occupied the premises from 1966 until 1992. Samuel Smith's brewery of Tadcaster converted the building in 2000 and it became the Angel Inn once more.

Briggate, showing Dixons Electrical Retailers at numbers 65 - 68. (City Centre) (1 comment)
Colour image6th October 1999. View of Dixons Electrical Retailers at numbers 65 - 68 Briggate. On 5th April 2006 there was a move away from the Dixons brand name and the store, one of a large chain throughout the U.K. and Northern Ireland owned by D.S.G. International PLC., is now known as Currys Digital. The pedestrianised areas of Briggate have been re-paved since this image was taken and the final phase is now in operation using York Stone and granite setts. The Angel Inn Yard, a narrow entrance at the right edge accesses Angel Buildings which re-opened as the Angel Inn in June 2000 after nearly one hundred years.
