Год издания: 2005Количество страниц: 208
Book DescriptionThe fourth volume in Earl Brechlin?s "Bygone . . . " series of old-postcard books focuses on how our grandparents and great-grandparents had fun in the outdoors: hiking, canoeing, visiting parks and natural wonders, communing with nature at remote mountain resorts, and roughing it at fishing and hunting camps. In addition to such energetic relaxation, some of these wonderful old postcards show the serious business of the backcountry: logging camps, early dams, the rail lines that pierced the wilderness. Short informative descriptions accompany the one hundred antique postcard views, which cover all of New England, from northern Maine to Rhode Island.
