History Mystery photo: Surely, this is York County, Pa., at its best – with lights on or off

hr
Some YorkTownSquare readers have seen this wonderful photograph before. Perhaps you found it easy to ID the location. Maybe the road signs gave it away. Or perhaps you’re stumped. Well, the answer is below, with a fun wrinkle. It’s the same photo, but there’s a difference. The light is on in the fan-shaped window. Photographer Shane Dunlap flipped the switch in that second-story room. It made a great photo, well, greater. Light or no light, surely, this is York County, Pa. at its best. Read more about how this photograph was made: Evening Sun Facebook. Also of interest: Check out more History Mystery quizzes and (fun) tests below.
