YORK ~ ENGLAND ~ The Shambles is a charming old street in York with overhanging timber-framed buildings, some dating back as far as the 14th century. The street-level shops, inlcuding butchers, catered to the townspeople. Although the butchers have since vanished, a number of shops still have meat-hooks hanging outside.
