Product Overview

Nantucket, that beautiful island thirty miles south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, has been nicknamed "The Gray Lady." This 48 square miles of real estate has long been, and remains, one of the premier tourist destinations in New England. Reflecting that popularity among tourists are the many vintage postcards produced of this scenic island. Exciting and beautiful examples of these postcards are captured here in 270 brilliant color photos. Nantucket is known to have the highest concentration of pre-Civil War era structures in the United States, many of which were captured in these postcards. The engaging text accompanying the photos recounts the history of Nantucket, from its early days when the island was considered the "Whaling Capital of the World," through today. Also discussed are the Nantucket lighthouses and the pastimes that made a vacation trip to the island worthwhile. Values for the postcards displayed are provided in the captions as well.
