Archives of Ontario Picton Gazette Fond

The Picton Gazette Fond was donated to the Archives of Ontario by David Taylor of the Prince Edward Historical Society in 1970, before the County of Prince Edward Archives were created.

In 2013 a partnership was formed between the County of Prince Edward Archives and The Archives of Ontario in order for The County Archives to digitize The Picton Gazette Fonds.

The project was funded by The Museum Technology Grant. The Fonds consists of 5,900 photographs taken in Hastings and Prince Edward counties by “Picton Gazette” staff. Subjects include community events, local landmarks, and individuals. The 3,000+ negatives which pertain to our geographical mandate were scanned and can be viewed as digital image files by conducting a search on our data base.
