1944 Hurricane Southeastern MA ...

This hurricane book has an artist's illustration on the cover. This is the third hurricane book to have this unusual feature after The 1924 and 1938 Standard-Times hurricane booklets. Note the drab green background color on the jacket (during the height of World War II ) Published by The Standard-Times New Bedford, and The Cape Cod Times of Hyannis, MA. Although there was a shortage of everything - including cameras and film - during the war, there was a large quantity of pictures taken of this serious storm event. Each page of this photo album has a full-sized picture - which I think is one of the best laid out hurricane booklets of it's time. Use SLIDESHOW feature for full-size photos.
