ROADS AND STREETS IN OLD DEVONPORT

YORK STREET

York Street ran westwards from the wall of Raglan Barracks to Catherine Street, crossing Chapel Street, Saint Aubyn Street, Cross Street, Tavistock Street and Pond Lane in the process.  It was previously known as Cherry Garden Street.

The first property numbered in York Street was the beer house on the corner of Saint Aubyn Street.  The only other licensed Landmark in York Street was The Shades, at number 29.

The principle buildings in York Street were the Territorial Force Drill Hall and York Street Council Schools (formerly the Cherry Garden Street Board School) on the southern side and Hope Baptist Chapel Sunday School on the northern.  Several businesses had premises in York Street, however, including the Tamar Motor Garage; the tailoring workshops of Messrs Gieves, Matthews and Seagrove, of Fore Street; the printing works of Messrs Wood and Tozer; the office and workshop of Mr Fredman; the coal stores of Mr W Shaw; and the piano and organ stores of Mr E Hocking.
