‘Faces of York County’ is new, and original idea is 200 years old

 The Faces of York County is a new digital feature developed by the York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News staff.

These examples, right, in photo above, of ‘Lewis Miller’s People’ are exhibited at the York County Heritage Trust and appear in a forthcoming book by that name.

By coincidence, the York Daily Record’s introduction of the ‘Faces of York County’ website,  examples at left, above, was launched as news of the book came out.

That prompted the YDR’s Chris Dunn to title a short story on a website about the coincidence: ‘The original “Faces of York County.” ’

So the people of 1800s York County appear on the ‘Faces’ page on ydr.com with 21st century York countians. Several generations come together.
