Discover the story of the seaside community called Nahant, a town situated along the rocky coast of Massachusetts Bay, in its first-ever photographic history. In over 200 images—most of which have never been published before—authors Christopher R. Mathias and Kenneth C. Turino trace the town's development from Nahant's early days as the premier resort north of Boston to the peaceful and picturesque village of today. Beginning with illustrations pre-dating the camera, this collection offers rare photographic views from the 1860s through the "baby boomer" years. As you leaf through these pages, you will see the many scenic coastal spots that have always attracted visitors, including Swallow's Cave, the great houses where wealthy Bostonians summered, and charming scenes of daily village life.
