An Edwardian era postcard of Cornwall’s High School.

The card is interesting but the stamp on the back may be of even more interest to the stamp collector.

The card with stamp will be sold to the first customer for only $4.

Remember all items are HST free.

1940s era postcard of the Cornwall General Hospital, 2nd St. E.  $2.

You will find more than local Cornwall history at the Museum’s table at this year’s Heritage Fair.  This second hand biography of Sir John A. Macdonald is available for $5.
