Enter A Grim Almanac of York to discover 365 gruesome tales from the city's dark past.

Generously illustrated with photographs, sketches, and original documents, here are true accounts of fires, catastrophes, murders, and executions. If you have ever wondered what nasty goings-on occurred in the York of yesteryear, then this book is for you. Prepare to be shocked, stunned, and startled!
