“The Camera’s Coast” is a sampler of historic coastal New England images from the collections of The Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities (SPNEA). The pioneering photographers represented from SPNEA include Nathaniel Stebbins, Henry G. Peabody, Baldwin Coolidge, and Emma Coleman. Subjects depicted include square-riggers, coasting schooners, fishing vessels and fishing ports, small boats and large yachts, summer hotels and fishermen’s shacks, fishermen, seaweed gatherers, and saltmarsh haymakers.

Curated by noted author and maritime historian William H. Bunting, “The Camera’s Coast” illustrates life along the New England coast in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These were years of great social and economic change. Many traditional maritime occupations, from longshore fishing and shipbuilding to deep water voyaging were in decline. With mushrooming industrialism and growing numbers of people able to take vacations--and increasingly hot, crowded, and dirty cities from which to flee--coastal recreation boomed.

Museum hours are Wednesday-Sunday 10:00 a.m. --4:00 p.m.
General Admission is $2 adults, $1.50 seniors, and chi ldren under 18 free.
