Description - Old York Beach by John D Bardwell

After the phenomenal success of Old York Beach, John Bardwell has responded with a new pictorial history that explores in even greater depth the rich historic fabric of the community. Old York Beach: Volume II combines more than two hundred delightful images with insightful captions to create an entertaining and informative visual history that is sure to captivate residents and tourists alike.Through the lens of a camera you will see the areaevolve from a small fishing and farming village intothe idyllic seashore resort that we know today. You will witness great Victorian hotels rise and fall; observe bustling streets; and see people some of whom you may recognize enjoying the beach, sailing, having cookouts, and reveling in the natural beauty of the area. In addition, there are images that document how the area adapted to the changing needs of new generations, as cabins became motels, parking lots replaced train stations, tenting grounds became trailer parks, and the dance halls at St. Aspinquid Park and the York Beach Casino were replaced by lounges in hotels and restaurants."
