Tempest Anderson

At 23 Stonegate is The York Medical Society rooms, and this nameplate can be found ouside the entrance to the property. Born in York in 1846 Tempest Anderson practiced as an ophthalmic surgeon, but was also a keen traveller, amateur vulcanologist and photographer. He was a wealthy man who chose to spend much of his time and money documenting active volcanoes around the world. You can see a picture he took of Mount Versuvius erupting here
If after seeing the posts this week you are wondering what Stonegate itself looks like take a look at an earlier post here.
Francis Hildyard's bookshop featured in the blog on Wednesday and is the building with the fancy bay window on the right of the street.
