Long since out of business, Horlacher's Beer was originally brewed in Allentown, PA.  I can't remember when this advertisement was not on the side of this building along Route 30 in Thomasville, PA.

York Friends Meeting Place at 135 W. Philadelphia Street, York, PA. 
The right side was built in 1766, the left side was built in 1783.  It was added to accommodate the women's meeting as the women met separately and conducted their own business and administered their own monies.  The building is still in use today.
