Its battleships and stone carvings have traveled the country and the world over, and the legacy of Quincy’s early years is indeed carved in stone. Patricia Harrigan Browne’s new visual history of this fascinating city chronicles its development from the 1870s through World War II in a series of remarkable vintage photographs. For many, of course, Quincy is a beloved and welcoming hometown community. Its natural charm and beauty hold great attraction- Quincy’s Hough’s Neck was once considered one of the premier summer resorts in the United States. Ms. Browne’s book contains photographs of beachgoers along the Quincy shore in 1916 and the building of the Neponset River Bridge, in addition to some especially moving pictures of the granite workers and carvers.
