Speakeasies reigned and the rich reveled in Bar Harbor in the 1920's. From the end of the Great War until the onslaught of the Great Depression, Americans had a good time, and nowhere was that more true than in Bar Harbor during high season. Amid peace and prosperity, the wealthy flocked to MDI, foxtrotted at the Swimming Club, and tangoed at the Dreamwood Ballroom. Rumrunners made covert pickups from isolated coves along the Mount Desert Narrows while Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and Astors coasted serenely in and out of Frenchman's Bay. Paperback with black & white photographs throughout. 126 pgs.
