Essex History Revealed Through Photographs
- 05/03/2010

Arcadia Publishing

More Info on This Book: Essex

With the first boat being built in 1660, Essex thrived off of the shipbuilding industry and developed into one of the largest producers of fishing schooners in the country.

In a new book by local authors Dawn Robertson and Kurt A. Wilhelm, over 200 vintage photographs reveal a microcosm of American culture and growth, telling the story of leading patriots, entrepreneurs, Civil War heroes, and hardworking everyday citizens.

The authors hope the book will “let readers pause and reflect on America's previous way of life while absorbing a new cache of stories and facts.”

Highlights of Essex:
• Features never-before seen historic photographs from the Dana Story Collection and other private collections
• Orients the reader to the various sections of Essex by clippings from David Choate’s 1853 map of Essex and aerial photographs
• Showcases town teams, school classes, fire companies, military units and other group photographs
• Provides an outline on how the town developed

The profits from the sale of the book will be donated to the Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum.
