Terry's, St Helen's Square, York

With York still in many readers' minds, this is a good time to post this photograph.

St Helen's Square is famous for Betty's, but when I was a student there was an even classier establishment across the road. Terry's shop sold chocolate downstairs and had wonderful tearooms upstairs. Thinking about it, the business may have closed while I was living in the city.

Today the building is occupied by the jewellers Swarovski - I seem to recall the National Railway Museum had a shop there for a while.

Though the passers-by are doing their best to disguise the fact, you can still see 'Terry's' on the front of the building.

Remember the tearooms well. Sadly missed. York is lucky it has Betty's to fill the gap.
