Front Street is a common name for the harborside street in several New England fishing communities. Bourne's view is that of a social historian. The book contains chapters on Noank, in Connecticut, Marblehead, Provincetown, Nantucket, New Bedford, and Gloucester in Massachusetts, and the islands of Maine, as well as shorter sections on places such as Rockport, Massachusetts and the Isles of Shoals. The author uses archives, interviews, and visits to describe the historic development of these communities. The average tourist or reader of Yankee Magazine will probably find more information here than he or she wants to know, but serious students of New England history will find this informative and enjoyable. Certainly this should be in any collection on New England history.
