Reminiscent of the Stonebow pub in York from the mid 1950’s

OUR photo from today’s archive is from 1958 and shows the Stonebow pub on the corner of Stonebow and Fossgate.

The pub has had many incarnations over the years – and has gone through several name changes, including the Northern Wall, The Boulevard, YO1 and The Terrace, as it is known today.

It is best known for its sports coverage – this is the place to watch the big game of the day.

Honestly, it has been a mecca for football fans for years thanks to the various screens scattered around the bar.

It must have been very different in 1958 – and if readers remember, please contact us.

Then it was called Stonebow, it was named after the location.

Building Stonebow in the 50s

Stonebow, the road connecting the city center to Layerthorpe, was constructed just three years earlier and opened on October 14, 1955. Note with many trying to preserve York’s historic character.
