New from Arcadia Publishing’s Then & Now series is Ogunquit by local authors Kathryn M. Severson, Susan Day Meffert and Marie D. Natoli. Vintage images are compared and contrasted with modern-day photographs for a side-by-side look at the local history in Ogunquit.
Blessed with extraordinary natural beauty, the village of Ogunquit has attracted artists of every kind. The artistic culture introduced by Charles Woodbury and Hamilton Easter Field, and later enriched by the success of the Ogunquit Playhouse, greatly added to the natural beauty of Ogunquit’s Marginal Way, white sand beach and harbor in Perkins Cove.
Highlights for Ogunquit:
• Contains several images that have been donated from private collections of local residents.
• Discover how many of the town’s summer residents are third and fourth generation Ogunquit visitors.
• Shows how the area has been an artists’ colony for years, being the locale for a very famous summer theatre.
The authors dedicate this book “to the memory of Ogunquit’s first families, whose foresightedness and generosity allowed the natural beauty of Ogunquit to be preserved forever”.
