A picture says a thousand words or so the old adage goes.  Photographs, postcards, and other pictures offer a fascinating window into the past and serve as a rich source for investigating how our physical and cultural environments have changed over time.  The following books all feature local pictures from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, giving us a glimpse of how our parish looked a century ago.  Come visit us to find these and other local history resources!
