As the gateway to the North Shore, Swampscott became one of the most popular summer resorts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Beyond the grand hotels, however, was a town by the ocean, where some derived their income from the sea and others sought the spirit of entrepreneurship and invention. Swampscott was incorporated in 1852 after breaking away from the city of Lynn. Connecting the past and present through a variety of images, Then & Now: Swampscott takes a look at foundations laid by our forefathers, the people who shaped the town and its legends. Whether it is General Electric cofounder Elihu Thomson, Chicago Bears coach Dick Jauron, or the New Ocean House, the collection of images in Then & Now: Swampscott is sure to make you look at the town in a different light and remember those who made the town what it is today.
