A guide to its Social and Political History. Told through its Architecture
Street by street, Building Provincetown takes you under the snug eaves of stout cape cottages and behind elegant Greek revival and queen Anne style doorways. You’ll meet Portuguese fisherman and Yankee whalers, Abstract expressionists and Aids activists, early gay pioneers and latter day buccaneers, drag queens, literary lions, Bohemians, Knights of Columbus, a few town criers, a lot of poets, plus shipwrights, sculptors and an 87 year old Avon lady.
Working with town residents, David Dunlap, who has covered historic preservation for the New York Times since 1981, gathered images and stories that have never before been presented in one place. If you don’t know Provincetown, this is an ideal introduction. If you think you already know Provincetown, your in for a few happy surprises.
