This collection of vintage postcards portrays the quiet villages, white sand beaches, historic homes, and privet-lined lanes that are the essence of Long Island s Hamptons. Stunning in their color, detail, and composition, these cards originally photographs depict a place and a way of life that has all but disappeared. Filled with the high drama of celebrity, the glorious architecture of the time, and the quiet splendor of the East End s landscapes and seascapes, The Lost Hamptons brings back the experience of a world all but swallowed by the march of time.
