SE6051 : Shambles, York

taken 9 years ago, near to York, Great Britain

Shambles, York
Shambles, York
One of York's oldest streets and a popular tourist attraction, where some of the roofs of 15th century buildings lean together until they almost meet in the middle. Traditionally a street of butchers shops, there were 26 butchers recorded on Shambles in 1872. Modern health and safety guidelines state that ladders should be securely placed on and against flat surfaces, at an angle of 75 degrees and where they can't be struck by passing motor vehicles. This guy's got no chance.
