Dune Shacks of Provincetown: Photographs by Jane Paradise

$15.00

On the wild back shore of Provincetown, Massachusetts, writers, artists, and families made summer homes in the early 1900’s. Affectionately called the dune shacks, some were originally life-saving huts constructed in the late 1890’s but most were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s out of debris and ship wrecked ruins.

A cluster of these original shacks exist today – ¬†some restored, some bandaged, some dilapidated – all loved. Each shack is unique with it’s own personality and it’s own name.
