Marblehead, Massachusetts, is a proud community steeped in history, and many fine images of its past still survive today. Paintings from the colonial period and engravings from the mid-nineteenth century complement the town's photographic record,which begins around 1865. In Marblehead Volume I,historian John Hardy Wright has brought together many of these images for the first time in a published work. This illuminating pictorial history focuses on the history of Marblehead from 1629 to 1940, and describes many of the community's fascinating architectural, topographical, and human elements. Even today this early New England fishing town presents visitors with evidence of its heritage, in everything from historic homes to a general sense of Yankee pride.
