The upper floors of the Habitat shop in High Ousegate; it's often worth looking up above street level for architectural interest. The Ouse is York's main river and is 200 metres to the right of this picture. The Foss, York's narrower waterway, features in yesterday's picture. The gate in Ousegate means street : in York bars are gates and gates streets, linguistic relics from the Viking age.
