The Perfect Apple Antidote: Unusually Beautiful Travel Photos from Nova Scotia


One of the real glories of the Internet is that photographic collections that would normally be buried deep in regional archives can make their way to the web. Many of these collections are not world-shattering in their importance, but they are significant and, in many cases, beautiful. This weekend, the Nova Scotia Archives unleashed a set of photos like this. Drawn mostly from travel photographers between the 1890s and 1930s, they are unusually high-quality. The pictures show the beauty of the rural province. Consider this your antidote to the Apple press conference coverage.
