New Hampshire Then & Now

Historical and Contemporary Photographs
of the Granite State from 1840 to 2005

by Peter E. Randall

New Hampshire native, and award-winning photographer, Peter E. Randall captured changes in cityscapes and landscapes. The 80 sets of images presented provide an important historical record contrasted with a contemporary artistic vision of New Hampshire and its people. Using the archives of the New Hampshire Historical Society, local historical organizations, and individuals, Randall selected the vintage photographs and recreated their contemporary equivalents. Also an historian, Randall included historical data for each photograph. It’s a perfect keepsake title for anyone who loves New Hampshire.
