  • This event has passed.

This one-hour, visual journey is largely based on Cape Ann Museum’s vast, historic photograph collection. The presentation is extensively researched and illustrates a lovely and short-lived time gone by, c1900. Learn about the 15 hotels, who they served, and what happened to them. Visual storyteller Susan Morreale will take you around the East Gloucester peninsula to a world where guests stayed, not for a week, but for a season. Understand how the land changed from one of farms and pastures to a center of resort life, and became the most dense area of summer hotels between Boston and Maine. This talk will be livestreamed on Vimeo and Facebook.
