Old Photo Album Collection
The links below are to the `Old Photo Album Collection'. The collection is of newspaper clippings that
contain a photo and the associated caption from the Bedford Gazette that are of people from the area. The collection has been completely
indexed and some of the photos in the clippings date to before 1900. Information includes the names of the people pictured, and when available,
the township where the people lived and the date the pictures were originally taken. For your convenience, we have included the maiden names
of married women and the townships where the people lived when the clipping captions provided this information.
The BCHS Staff will be happy to scan, make copies and deliver them to you for a fee of $5.00
for the first scanned clipping. All orders will be scanned at 600 dpi and emailed. All snail mail orders will be high resolution copies,
not photographs. For information concerning multiple copies of the same clipping, or multiple scanned clippings, please contact the library staff.
