Old Marblehead; A Camera Impression

New York: Hastings House, 1940. First edition. Boards. 12mo, pp. 73, illustrated with b/w photographs. Very Good; 1.5" split at spine. Item #20761

Few towns are as superbly equipped as Marblehead, Massachusetts, to provide a graphic and concentrated cross section of early New England and its graceful way of living. Closely built on its ledges of rock, and amazingly well preserved despite two serious fires, Marblehead still presents to the visitor the picture of an ancient New England town. The opulent mansions of the merchant princes and the humbler dwellings of the fishermen are still in place, to call up memories of the town's pre-Revolutionary greatness as a shipping and fishing port. This little book aspires to give an impression of the beauties of this unforgettable old New England town. Many winter scenes are shown, for Marblehead is at its loveliest after a snowstorm. By dodging automobiles and telephone poles, the photographer tries to catch the Marblehead which delights the artist and visitor alike. A charming photographic portrait of Marblehead.
