View of the small country town of Beverley in Yorkshire, showing wide streets lined with Georgian and medieval buildings. The minster (a church attached to a monastery) that appears in the background is the landmark of the town. Daniel Defoe visited in the early 18th century, writing: "It is a large and populous town, though I find no considerable manufacture carried on there ... it is above a mile in length, being of late much improved in its buildings, and has pleasant springs running quite through its streets." There were two churches, a free school and six almshouses.
