I grew up in Maryland, just north of Washington, D.C. and we always thought of Maryland as being in two parts: where I lived and east of us somewhere was the Eastern Shore.
We never knew much about the Eastern Shore except that we thought that it was old, "behind the times" and on the other side of the Chesapeake Bay. And so it was, in a quiet but elegant sort of way. Now, through Ms. Burgoyne's books, I'm learning more about the Eastern Shore that now rises as a gem of Americana, quite preserved in its simplicity and its modest grandeur.
The authenticity of this book rests upon Ms. Burgoyne's extensive, personal research in the accumulation of archival and cotemporary photographs, plus her research of facts for her editorial comments. In Ms. Burgoyne's hands, these photographs and facts make this book a truly historic document. I would certainly recommend "Easton, Then and Now" to anyone interested in the Eastern Shore of Maryland and to anyone who would like to take a stroll through a historic part of colonial Maryland that has changed "Now," since "Then"...but not that much.
