In the late 1880s, pharmacist Elwin "Doc" Young began to photograph the people, places, and events in his bustling crossroads community of North Kingstown. He turned the best of these images into postcards and sold them in his apothecary shop. Today, readers can admire Young's impressive art in this volume, North Kingstown: 1880-1920. These pages highlight North Kingstown's golden era--a time when elite East Coast families on their way to Newport would stop in quaint villages and mingle with the residents. These captivating images show the people, technology, and architecture of an important city at the beginning of the 20th century.
