Mr Monkey studied the front of King's Manor, so-called because the Tudors and Stuarts used it as a seat of government after Henry VIII stole it from the abbot of St Marys during the Dissolution. Mr Monkey was interested to see that when they'd added the arms of Charles I over the door, they'd had problems with the lettering of the motto. More or less next door, Mr Monkey examined the outside of the 1892 Art Gallery.
You can read about the King's Manor at the University of York website and about the gallery at the York Art Gallery website.
