Dune Shacks of Provincetown: Photographs by Jane Paradise
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.
