Remember these York restaurants?

Remember getting all dressed up to go out for a good dinner with the family or the place you ate all those hamburgers, fries and milkshakes when you were a teenager? York County Heritage Trust Assistant Librarian Victoria Miller has created a case exhibit of enlarged photos of some of those restaurants we remember from the 1930s to the 1960s.

The photo above shows the York Diner being moved in 1949. The one below captures the stationary diner about a decade before.

Remember the Tremont, Lau’s in Dover and Bortner’s on West Market Street? You can see these and more in the case right outside the YCHT Library/Archives door from nine to five Tuesdays through Saturdays. (250 East Market St., York.)

I don’t think you can dispute that York County people like to eat–what and where was your special restaurant meal?
