The "other York"

Last September we were in PA so we decided to see what the place (York Fairgrounds) looks like when it's not a Train Meet.  Here's a few pics... see if you can spot a few "landmarks"

  I think this may be what Vinny does when he's not at NJHR

  Under the grandstands... never saw this before

  I think that guy on the left is saving his spot for the next train meet!

  This is a vendor we need at out meets... a place to rest between purchases

   "I'll meet you in the Orange Hall," he said sheepishly....

  I've been camping with my van in the same spot at York for 6 or 7 Yorks now...

  some guy comes along and hijacks MY spot to put up a sausage stand !!! ARRRRGGGHHH!

  FYI: I like "our" York better!

A few yeas ago I came across a bunch of postcards from the 1880s to 1910s which had pictures of the York Fair from the time period.   I found them to be an interesting piece of history.

Ones showing anything besides the race track are hard to find.

Made it there twice, non-TCA, once for a train show!,  only in what was Blue Hall, promoted by guy from Harrisburg who had right of door table in "Sheraton" during TCA.  Another time was vacation detour and found a dinnerware and glass blow-out sale in another building.  Have also seen a motor home show there just prior to TCA.

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!
