PICTOU – Not long ago, a mysterious woman turned up at the McCulloch Heritage Centre on Haliburton Road.
Josh Stright, an employee with the McCulloch Heritage Centre, holds a painting that mysteriously appeared at the centre with a list of the Ship Hector passengers. The centre would like to know more about the painting and is asking anyone with information to get in touch. Sueann Musick – The News
Michelle Davey, executive director of the centre, said a passenger list of the Ship Hector was dropped off recently and with it was a 20x24 painting of a woman dressed in blue.
“We aren’t sure who dropped off the list, which looks like it is from the 1970s and with it was this painting. We don’t know who the woman is and would like some more information on her,” she said.
A note on the back of the painting says it was used as backing for the passenger list, but Davey said she would like to learn more.
Anyone with any information about who dropped off the list or painting, is asked to contact Davey at Daveymx@gov.ns.ca or by calling McCulloch Heritage Centre on Haliburton Road at 485-4563.
