About this title

Synopsis:

Dr. William M. Bergan's classic book provided a unique glimpse into the history of Hull, Mass. when first published in 1968, and its appeal has only grown since. This commemorative edition is a 2004 reprint of the author's original work, which brings to life the people and places that made the Town of Hull and Nantasket Beach famous in the early 20th century.

With a touch of humor, plenty of anecdotes and wonderful old photogrpahs, "Old Nantasket" allows readers to experience the grandeur of the huge hotels, the majesty of Paragon Park and the luxury of the side-paddle steamboats that shuttled visitors to and from Boston.

Life in "Old Nantasket" had its share of corruption, con men and shady politics, and Doc Bergan doesn't shy away from describing those aspects in detail. A former Hull selectman, he provides fascinating insights into the inner workings of the local government, including the rise and fall of the political machine known as the "Old Ring."
