Provincetown Volume I (Massachusetts)
by John Hardy Wright
1997, Arcadia Publishing
From the back cover:
Established in 1727, Provincetown first found prosperity in the trade and commerce of the fishing and whaling industries. At the turn of the twentieth century, however, the seaport's beguiling charms and innate beauty were discovered by artists and writers who flocked to the seashore and successive droves. The spirit and energy other those new year-round residents and seasonal creative individuals injected new life into the heart of the community. The more than 200 black-and-white images in this delightful volume, most of which are from vintage postcards, chronicle the evolution of Provincetown - from the conception, building, and dedication of the Pilgrim Memorial Monument, America's tallest granite monument, to the activities of residents and tourists at work and play in the three neighborhoods of this enchanting Cape Cod town.
In this engaging architectural and social history, antiquarian and historian John Hardy Wright brings to life the stories, culture, and pride of Provincetown in the first of two volumes on this fascinating, atypical Cape Cod community.
