Photographer's Note

Who am I kidding: my photos are never about the people, always about the places. But the man with the backpack at least gave me the idea for a title different than “Postcard from York”...

The church in the very centre is of course the famous York Minster. It is so overwhelming that nobody probably dares to mention any other church in York. That is why in my note I am going to mention another church which in this photo appears to be wrongly higher than the Minster. It is St Wilfrid’s Church.
St. Wilfrid's is a Roman Catholic church located in the centre of York in the shadows of York Minster. A Church dedicated to St. Wilfrid has stood in York since medieval times. Catholics call it the "Mother Church of the city of York." It is in Gothic Revival style. The Arch over the main door has the most detailed Victorian carving in the city. The present Church was completed in 1864 and it was considered to be one of the most perfectly finished Catholic Churches in England, rich in sculptures, paintings and stained glass.
