Memories of York takes Facebook by storm

memories of york

Ever wondered what York looked like in the late 19th century? Ever had a question about what happened to a particular building or shop? If so wonder no more. A Facebook page called Memories of York has been created which gives followers a glimpse of our beautiful city from years gone by. Created by Tom Holland and Barry Smith, the page allows followers the ability to share pictures, stories and memories of York. Founded on 31st January 2013, the page has really taken off, attracting over 7,500 likes in just over a month. It’s a great concept and quite refreshing to see Facebook used in such a positive way, rather than the usual self promotion of companies and celebrities. If you have not already ‘liked’ the page, head over to their Facebook page to enjoy the photographs and stories from residents past and present.
