9780738509945: Yarmouth (ME) (Images of America)

It is an odd fact that Yarmouth grew richer as it grew smaller. By 1849, parts of six towns had been formed from the original settlement and yet Yarmouth still prospered due to the many mills and shipyards clustered around its sheltered harbor. The mansions of sea captains and merchants arose along its elm-shaded streets. When shipbuilding and other key industries declined, the town turned to its scenic islands and peninsulas to attract cottagers and other tourists to a leisurely world of clambakes and sailing parties.

Yarmouth explores this fascinating coastal town in more than two hundred rare photographs. Haunting images, many of which have never been published, portray employees working in the shipyards and factories while the mill owners entertain in their gardens. The tranquility of life in Victorian cottages by the sea contrasts sharply with the drama of floods, fires, and train wrecks. Fourth of July celebrations appear raucous in comparison with the somber parades of Civil War veterans.

About the Author:

After graduating from Harvard, Alan M. Hall moved to Yarmouth and began a long career of teaching, lecturing, and writing about local history. He is a member and former trustee of both the Yarmouth Historical Society and the Maine Historical Society. Hall uses decades of research and many newly discovered images to evoke a lost world of sea captains and saltwater farms. This volume will appeal not only to the residents of Yarmouth but also to anyone who dreams of life in a small village by the sea.
