This collection of vintage postcards portrays the quiet villages, white sand beaches, historic homes, and privet-lined lanes that are the essence of Long Island's Hamptons.

Filled with the high drama of celebrity, the glorious architecture of the time, and the quiet splendor of the East End's landscapes and seascapes, The Lost Hamptons brings back the experience of a world all but swallowed by the march of time.
