New Hampshire Then and Now
With the support of the New Hampshire Historical Society and other institutions and individuals, author-photographer Peter Randall selected 80 historical images and matched them with his award-winning photographs to illustrate how landscapes and the built environment have changed or remained nearly the same through the years. New Hampshire Then and Now: Historical and Contemporary Photographs of the Granite State from 1840 to 2005 includes views of Acworth, Nelson, Harrisville, Gilsum, Stark, and Haverhill, each a town where the architecture of the present recalls the past. Also included are images of communities like Manchester, Portsmouth, and Claremont, where the 19th-century cityscapes have been preserved. From a fishing camp in Wentworth Location to an old hotel on the Isles of Shoals, here is a New Hampshire, changing and preserved, adapting to the future, but appreciative of the past.
