In a bold composition by Taylor, a shaft of light falls on a corner of the Lady Chapel of York Minister, illuminating its Gothic features and two monuments, the nearer one to 19th century Archbishop Thomas Musgrave. The historic city of York was an important tourist destination in the LNER network and Taylor created a number of posters of it. The printer was Vincent Brooks, Day and Son of London.
