Huge collection of postcards showing York County’s past

I apologize for the lack of recent posts, everyone! I’m in the middle of a project for the YDR that’s taking 100% of my working hours and then some, but I’m trying to find a few minutes here and there on my own to share what I can.

Today, just a couple of quick and neat things. First, here’s something neat our image technician, my friend Brenda Hake, put together: A gallery of all sorts of postcards showing York County in the past, more than 60 of them altogether. You may have seen many of them in earlier blog posts, but here they are much larger and all in one place. I hope you enjoy!

Next, for those of you on Twitter, you can now follow me @YDRAskJoan for all sorts of local goodness. I’ll update there even when I’m not able to write full posts here, so please stay in touch that way if you can!

Finally, wish me luck… I test tomorrow for my first-degree black belt in tae kwon do at Dover Dragons! I’ve talked about that journey occasionally in the past here, and I appreciate all the support!

    Enjoyed the post card collection. Take a look at cards # 30 & 38. See the woman in blue hat walking away from Murphy’s, the cars approaching the intersection and the man walking towards the intersection in card #30? In card #38 she’s standing at the light waiting to cross the street, the two cars are sitting waiting for the light to change and the walking man is now waiting too, partially hidden behind the lamp post. The two cards must have been taken one right after the other.
