Bronze plaque № 9181 in York

Minster Gates. Here stood one of the Entrance Gates into the Minster Liberty, for foot traffic only. There have been posts here for probably 600 years. The approach was called at one time Bookland Lane and, after the coming of printing, Bookbinders Alley, because of its association with bookselling and printing. Note the sign on the corner property (→) depicting Minerva (goddess of wisdom and drama) leaning on a pile of books.
