Overview

A mecca for families and beachgoers for over one hundred years, Hampton is situated along New Hampshire's short coastline. Composed of two distinct parts--town and beach--the town is a studyin contrasts. The quiet, colonial village three milesinland did not see much growth until after World WarII. Meanwhile, the beach area progressed rapidly from a nearly deserted stretch of ocean occupied by fishermen and a few scattered hotels to a bustling beach resort that could draw more than 100,000 tourists on a hot Fourth of July weekend. This fascinating volume contains over two hundred old photographs. Vintage images of Hampton Beach show the resort through its many changes; from its lazy beginnings, through the era of the grand hotels,electric trolley cars, and swing bands who played at the Ballroom, up to the 1950s, when the beach became a popular family resort destination.

Elizabeth Aykroyd and Betty Moore are the curator and executive director of the Tuck Museum in Hampton. In Hampton and Hampton Beach, they have drawn upon the large collection of postcards from the Tuck Museum to illustrate the changing face of the area. These souvenirs not only recall an earlier time in Hampton but are also an invaluable record of the town in the early decades of the twentieth century.
