Naming The Faces Of Our Past


Their faces are preserved on sepia, but their names are lost from the historical record. In a press release issued today, the NS Dept. of Communities, Culture and Heritage is asking the public's help in identifying Nova Scotians from our past in a collection of previously unseen photographs from the Nova Scotia Archives.

Many of the photos are over 100 years old and depict residents of the province who have traveled abroad to locales as diverse as Italy and Japan. According to Heritage Minister David Wilson, the snapshots in time are part of a new way for the public to access our shared history.
