Historic Pictou County Photos

Pictou County established in 1835, has a very rich history and experienced many changes over the years. Unlike modern day where there seems to be a camera around every where you look and digital photos are like a ‘dime a dozen’ ; historical photos are more precious and can help us to better understand what things were like around here back in time.
