about

STEP back in time to the Turn Of The Twentieth century world of photographer and artist Glenduen Ladd, born in 1891. Over 70 images offer an intimate view of her fast-changing world. Buggies were bumped by the auto and the Gibson Girl made fashion waves that reached even to Ladd's home at New England's northern tip. Ladd's lens and paint brush captures the peace and optimism of her era, when, as statesman Harold Macmillan once observed, people believed "everything would get better and better." Most of these images (which include a section on her art) have never before been made public.

These and related archives and interviews, provide intriguing footnotes to this region's history the rescue of a Revolutionary soldier's grave and those of other early settlers in a Canadian border hamlet; the Adventist movement that spread north after the "Great Disappointment," when the world's end failed to arrive as predicted by William Miller; and tales of frontiersmen that bring to mind the likes of Daniel Boone and James Fenimore Cooper's Hawkeye.

So, readers, leave behind the stress of the 21st century shut off the cell phone, push away from the computer and take an armchair trip back into Ladd's "Turn of the Twentieth Century" world.
