1215. Sicchio, Mary. The Forgotten Cape: 1940-1960. Arcadia. 2007

1215. Sicchio, Mary. The Forgotten Cape: 1940-1960. Arcadia. 2007. 128p. Soft wraps. 180 vintage photographs. In the 1940s through the 1960s, the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce promoted Cape Cod as an alluring vacationland where the blue begins, and the frets of life cease. At the same time, a young, exuberant man with a camera, Richard Cooper Kelsey, arrived in Chatham. Kelsey began compiling a photographic record of small town life, of Cape Cod tourist landmarks, and the real people of Cape Cod with precision and clarity. He portrayed a Cape Cod of much beauty and charm, an earlier, more youthful time, and a time just within reach of memory. The photographs in The Forgotten Cape: 1940-1960 were culled from the over 7,000 item Kelsey Collection of the Nickerson Room at Wilkens Library, Cape Cod Community College. Superb photographs, well worth it for the photos alone. (M). $21.99.
