This 1920s photo garnered a lot of attention at the Imagine Antigonish banner exhibit sponsored by Arts Health Antigonish (AHA!) and featured at the 2014 Antigonish Highland Games.  Gender is a Social Determinant of Health as established by the World Health Organization and was among the 14 Banners in Imagine Antigonish’s (www.imagineantigonish.org) travelling exhibit.  Other banners included Play and Early Childhood Education, Peace, Education & Lifelong Learning, Access to Health Care, Sports & Recreation.  Do visit the Imagine Antigonish web site for an introduction to the healing art of black and white photography and to the art of photographic restoration. Our local photographers  restored photos of Antigonish town and county dating from 1880s to 1960s, all b/w.   This photo is Courtesy of Antigonish Heritage Museum and was restored by Betty Cameron.   Imagine Antigonish is “resting” at the Antigonish Heritage Museum until its next stop.  It will travel to the local retirement living centres and long-term care facilities, and is scheduled for a showing at St. Francis Xavier University in the fall semester.
