Mapping the Murals of York, Pa.: A new walking tour of city’s outdoor murals

Linked in/Neat stuff, below: Lincoln 150/Art at Hugh McCall Mansion
The rather obscure ‘Made in York’ mural on West Market Street stands out for several reasons: It’s the smallest mural of the Murals of York, Pa. The mural on the wall of the old Sam & Tony’s eatery is a bit hidden, which might be why vandals had their way with it recently. It was already one of the most blemished murals, peeling from the bottom up. Still, it effectively calls attention to York County’s heyday as a manufacturer of Pullmans (seen here) and other vehicles. It’s an early stop on a tour of the Murals of York, put forth by the York Daily Record’s Anthony Machcinski, below. So you could say this map is ‘Made in York,’ too. Also of interest: Colorful Murals of York, Pa., engaging and intriguing at old age.

Marking the day: On April 21, 150 years ago, Lincoln’s funeral train rolled through York County. Harrisburg plans an April 21 event. Steam into History has set an observance April 25 -26. (Click on the date if the photo does not load).

Mike & Debi Dwyer Beshore, Scott Mingus Sr., Joan Jackson Mummert, Jim McClure – wonder if anyone may be attending this vigil, and if it will come thru York as it did 150 years ago.
