Author
This fascinating new book, by local historian Timothy Regan, brings to life the story of Keyport from 1714 to 1950 through a compelling combination of words and images. Over 200 vivid photographs (many of which have never before been published) bring us face-to-face with people, places, and events from Keyport's past—some familiar but many vanished and forgotten.
