Folks, if you're looking for some fun and fabulous writing about York County ephemera today, THE place to go is my wife's blog, Only in York County. She has knocked it out of the park this week (as always) with a pair of posts that touch on local ephemera, history and travel.
In "Pennsylvania has everything! A look at what was great about York County from a 1937 book" Joan takes an in-depth look at the York County material from a 74-year-old Pennsylvania tourism guide. She touches on bridges, a towering white oak tree in Delta, monuments, dams, lakes and historic buildings.
And in "Do you remember Pappy's?" she examines a mid-1970s menu for a now-vanished York County restaurant. Her readers join the discussion, too, adding their memories of Pappy's, where you could get a Charbroiled Burger basket for $1.15, a Jumbo Kosher Hot Dog basket for 95 cents, and Pappy's Special -- "A Robust Portion of Tender Juicy Choice Ground Beef, Served on Bun, with French Fries, Salad, Slice of Kosher Pickle" -- for $1.95.
But don't take my word for it. Go check out Joan's blog!
And then check back here later today for the Story Gnome.
