Clay County Photo Album

These are some great old pictures and it's especially great that someone still knows who the people were.  If you would like to have a photograph included on this page, just e-mail it to me and I'll get it posted as soon as I can.  Please send it in .jpg format at 72 dpi.

Most of these pictures are very large files, and may take a while to load, but they are also of great detail.
