  1. I have some photos that my father had taken over the years that need a good home. He lived in Nelson for his entire life (99 yrs) and loved to explore and enjoy the outdoors around the area. The photos range from the 1930's through the 70's. If you would be interested I would be happy to donate them to your group.
