Newberry Street great for York snow photos: ‘You have a hill, a curve, and interesting architecture’

This York, Pa., scene from weekend storm went viral on the York Daily Record’s Facebook page and beyond – and rightfully so. The color is gorgeous. YDR photographer Paul Kuehnel responded to the more than 600 ‘likes’ and comments: ‘Newberry St. is a favorite snow place for me. You have a hill, a curve, and interesting architecture.’ When asked what provided the red in this photo, Paul emailed back that he believes its a hawthorne berry or some other type of berry. ‘I liked the green car contrast,’ he wrote.

York County, Pa., has a lot of deserted places once in spotlight

These piers are all that remain of a trolley bridge near Green Valley Pool in West Manchester Township, Pa. The far-ranging trolley system, which ended in 1939, sprawled over York County. As the trolleys passed up Trolley Road from York to Dover, they crossed Church Road at Broad Street. That crossing formed a kind of town square for Shiloh, which moved to Church Street and Carlisle Road when the trolley quit running and Route 74 was improved. Trolleys then descended into the little valley crossed by Poplars Street. This bridge spanned the Little Conewago Creek, providing a grade for the trolley to climb and then head to Brookside Park and then Dover.
