How history mystery photos help promote, preserve York County, Pa.’s story

This history mystery photo is an example of the two to three that I post each day on the York Daily Record’s Facebook Page. The photos, taken from present and past Yorktownsquare.com posts, invariably attract extensive engagement, meaning comments, likes and shares. I often go in to answer questions as well. The audience is large considering the YDR’s Facebook pages has 22,500+ likes. I engage with readers on there and also on my own Facebook page and on Twitter. And also when you comment on this blog. These interactions are important in helping to promote and preserve York County’s history. We teach each other. I learn a lot from the commenting, probably more than I impart.
