York Daily Record/Sunday News delivery made to ‘Downton Abbey’


York County history afficionados June Lloyd and Rebecca Roberts traveled to ‘Downton Abbey’ in England with their York Daily Record/Sunday News.

For years, a popular practice for York countians is to bring the York Daily Record/Sunday News with them on trips, capture a photo and send it to the newspaper to “document” their trip.

About 10 years ago, the idea came to the YDR newsroom courtesy of our sister newspaper, the Long Beach (Calif.) Press-Telegram. Readers supply us with so many that we often have a bit of a backlog. A couple of photos run each Sunday on the travel page, so we keep the stack manageable

By the way, travel content on Sundays is moving from the back page of the Business section to the third page of Living. That page is what we call a color position on the printing press, meaning that travel photos from readers soon will start appearing in color in the York Sunday News.

Meanwhile, we’ve been gathering these travel photos, and a bunch appear in this YDR travel photo gallery.

Feel free to upload your travel pictures at this photo gallery site – whether you remembered to bring along your YDR or not.
