Bridgehampton is a fascinating look at one of the prime resort areas on the South Fork of Long Island. The history of Bridgehampton was captured magnificently by studio and itinerant photographers whose work from the mid-1800s to the late 1900s is reflected here. These stunning images show people as they raised children, worked on the farm, worshiped, studied, socialized, and played. The faces show expressions of pride, joy, and, occasionally even boredom, providing a realistic portrayal of the past.
