Cape Cod New & Old
From the late 1600s to about 1900, the blood of Cape Codders was 100 per cent English. From the Mayflower settlers to the shopkeepers of 1912, it was rare to see anyone on Cape Cod other than Cabots, Tuppers, Standishes and such. All that changed with the popularity of the Ford Model T. America, and indeed the whole world, was on the move. And it seemed to the locals, that everybody wanted to come to Cape Cod. This book, written by an old Cape Cod dowager shortly after 1900, details the transformation of Cape Cod from the sleepy little collection of villages it had been for 300 years to the bustling vacation destination it is today. Complete with excellent illustrations, the book offers a rare glimpse into Cape Cod life as it was a hundred years ago.
