Notes A charming pencil drawing of Micklegate in York during the mid 20th century. The drawing is dated and titled in pencil but it is not signed. Micklegate is a street in the City of York, England. The name means "Great Street", "gate" coming from the Old Norse gata, or street. Micklegate lies on the western side of the River Ouse, Yorkshire, and holds the southern entrance into the city, Micklegate Bar, through which many monarchs have entered. Following the Battle of Wakefield, a battle during the Wars of the Roses, the heads of Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York (father of Edward IV and Richard III), Edmund, Earl of Rutland (another son of Richard) and Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury were displayed on Micklegate Bar.
