Details

Stonegate by YorkArtist's resident artist Mark Braithwaite

From The Classic York Collection

Many of the streets in York are called "Gates". 

Once the Via Praetoria of the Roman city of Eboracum, Stonegate is one of the most famous streets in York, leading from the South Transept of the Minster to the Mansion House and Guildhall. Its name derives from the fact that it was a Roman paved street.

Here the architecture of centuries mingles to provide a picturesque setting, the delight of visitors and residents alike

Stonegate was home to famous printing offices in the 17th century. York was, for a long time, the only place outside of London where a printing press was allowed to be set up, and Stonegate was at the heart of this industry. Curiously for that time, women were prominent in the printing trade.

Renowned as the street of booksellers, in the 18th century, Stonegate housed the finest bookshop outside London, the Sign of the Bible. The "Bible" still hangs outside of No. 23.

The first home of The Braithwaite Gallery was at No. 41, on the second floor of Stonegate Antiques Centre, shown on the left of the picture. The former Town Crier, in his distinctive red coat can be seen in the background - he used to ring his bell each morning at 11am on Stonegate. A print of this painting was presented by The Braithwaite Galley to John Redpath, the Town Crier.

Look for Lucy, M.J. Braithwaite's black cat trademark!
