Picturing Old New England: Image and Memoryby William H. Truettner (Editor), Roger B. Stein (Editor)
Village greens surrounded by neat, white-framed houses, Yankee farmers and sturdy fishermen, country stores and church spires-all these images evoke New England, though much of the region was industrialized long ago. This fascinating book examines pictures of Old New England created by diverse artists between 1865 and 1945 and inquires how and why Americans treasure and maintain these images.
