Clifford’s Tower, York

Monday 20th July 2015, 3.40pm (day 1,425)

Americans at Cliffords Tower, 20/7/15

First weekday of Joe’s school summer holiday and first weekday of my break too. Took him to York. This is Clifford’s Tower, which in 1190 was the scene of a notorious suicide/massacre by hundreds of persecuted Jews, and has been more-or-less in ruins since someone accidentally set fire to it in 1684. Today, venue for a school party of Americans to be conducted by their teacher (below) in a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’. Tuneless — as ‘Happy Birthday’ always is when sung, fewer tunes are massacred more often.
