Camera's Coast, The: Historic Images of Ship and Shore in New England
W. H. Bunting. SC
Winner of the 2007 American Association for State and Local History Leadership Award of Merit. A beautifully-illustrated book showcasing the collection in Historic New England's Library and Archives. Historic photographs are paired with a rich assortment of old postcards, advertisements, and posters. This panorama of New England coastal activity is engagingly described by Bunting, a maritime historian who brings old photographs to life with small stories - sometimes humorous, sometimes heroic, sometimes tragic, but always captivating.
