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.
