Awarding-winning photographer Sylvia Galbraith of Fergus has created a major exhibit that celebrates the places and people of Wellington County. For over two years, Sylvia has visited ten County towns and villages and photographed present day streetscapes based on historical images from the Museum and Archives collection of photos and postcards. Her interpretations offer insights about permanence and change in our County over the decades. The result is an exhibit of stunning images of everyday life against historical backdrops that will delight and intrigue.

Special thanks to exhibit sponsor, the Wellington County Historical Society.

"When viewed as a whole, this exhibition shows a connection between the past and present, how things have changed, and also how history seems to repeat itself in daily life," Sylvia Galbraith said.
