  • More About This Book
Vivid and entrancing, the images of New Hampshire's Lakes Region included in this volume span more than a century of memories. Residents of the area, both natives and newcomers, will find a strong connection with the faces and places presented. The over 200 vintage photographs that make up this fascinating visual history take us to communities on Winnipausaukee, Newfound, and Squam Lakes. Readers also catch glimpses of bustling towns near Chocorua Lake, Winnisquam, Waukewan, and Wicwas. The focus for residents and visitors who come to this pristine area of New Hampshire has always been the lakes. From Alton Bay and Tamworth to Meredith and New Hampton, from Wolfeboro and Center Harbor to Plymouth and Bristol, people have enjoyed exploring, boating, and fishing. Some found a strong source of power for industry here; others built homes and schools; and many have simply enjoyed the cold, spring-fed waters of the lakes for recreation.
