Swallow left behind his short-lived car dealership and began a successful cottage industry, printing his own hand-colored postcards. He was the First to Introduce the Souvenir Post Card to One-Half of New England, according to the imprint of his trademark swallow. Many of Swallows photographs are contained within this book, which tells a special history of Exeter, New Hampshire, between 1900 and 1940-a time when the horse and carriage era shifted to the automobile, hemlines rose a few inches, and electricity came to town. Learn about a mysteriously lost statue, hidden waterways, great buildings that burned, forgotten parades, and the famous Swallow Girls. Most images, never before seen, are from the Exeter Historical Societys collection, and proceeds from the sales of this publication support the society in honor of its seventy-fifth anniversary.
