The Evelyn Collection has been in the safekeeping of the Yorkshire Architectural and York Archaeological Society (YAYAS), and offers a glimpse of the unique and unequalled heritage of the City of York.


Illustrating all aspects of York life, its buildings, industry and heritage rarely, if ever, seen before, York – A Rare Insight features a wide selection of images from the Collection which are published for the first time.
