Early Nantucket Island Photos


December 13, 2015 /Photography News/ Nantucket is an island 30 miles (48 km) south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in the United States. Together with the small islands of Tuckernuck and Muskeget, it constitutes the town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and the Nantucket County. 

The island features one of the highest concentrations of pre-Civil War structures in the United States. It also has the oldest operating windmill in the United States (since 1746).

The Nantucket Historic District, comprising all of Nantucket Island, was added to USA's National Register of Historic Places 49 years ago today, on December 13, 1966.

For nearly twenty years, from 1900 to 1918, Nantucket was the only place in the nation that successfully fought encroachment of the automobile within its limits. Opposing politicians on the mainland and large property owners, mostly non-residents, Nantucketers kept the island free of the "gasoline buggy" until the final vote of the town on May 15, 1918. By the narrow margin of forty the automobile was allowed entry. Clinton Folger was the mail carrier for Nantucket. Because cars were forbidden by the town, he towed his car to the state highway for driving to Siasconset. Source: Nantucket Historical Association

    Such images make me feel nostalgic. Sort of sadness that all these places look so much different now.


    Jane J. says

    I totally agree with Paolo.

    This can arrive you with an excessively costly back choice that could even take more time to reimburse than you would have at first proposed. It absolutely pays to have a little persistence and just demand a quote when you are totally certain of the suitability of the assention. Payday Loans

    They don't generally fill the void. When you possess your vehicle inside and out, a title credit will give a bigger measure of brisk money to fill the unfilled record. Whether it gives cash to get by till the following paycheck or to compensate for lost wages, an auto title advance is one more choice to the individuals who have less assets for money related security. online car title loans in fresno ca

    Paulo says

    Capabilities you should be met to concede credit installments. Exchanging to another school does not consequently mean you must begin reimbursement. For instance, Federal Stafford advances, and others, don't request reimbursement inasmuch as your are enrolled as a full-time or half-time understudy in any authorized school.

    Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage.

    Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade.

    Settled rate advances being "altered" offer a feeling of solace and sureness identified with portions to borrowers. The alternative shields borrowers from changing economic situations and loan costs, and permits them to pay according to the sum concurred with the bank. This choice is perfect for people, who are hazard opposed and don't wish to have any progressions to their money related arrangements. www.usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
