Overview

Beware, armchair travelers, this book may create a yearning that only walks along the Cape's streets and coves will satisfy. For those who have visited the Cape, it will conjure up recollections of an idyllic vacation. For natives, it will be like reading a letter from home in picture and verse. The picturesque images capture a way of life that is both historic and nostalgic. Over two hundred vintage postcards, from the early 1900s through the 1950s, display carefree times in the Cape's small towns, quiet beaches, and bustling harbors. Verses by the Cape's celebrated writer and poet, Joseph Crosby Lincoln, are interspersed amid the charming images.
