Back in history into streets of medieval Europe.

JMA_Jetties

The ‘Shambles’ in York, England (see map). A medieval street with buildings constructed in the XIV century. Still well preserved. The overhangs of upper floors over floors below are called jetties. It is a building technique used in medieval timber-frame buildings to increase the available space inside the building.
