Tourists have flocked to the beaches and hotels of the Kennebunks for more than one hundred years. At the dawn of the twentieth century, postcards that showcased the area's attractions were popular with visitors as mementos and as an inexpensive means of communication. Today, the historic postcards that survive provide a look back at the Kennebunks of an earlier era. The Kennebunks in Season contains almost two hundred postcard images featuring the early hotels and businesses that catered to the tourist trade in Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Cape Porpoise, along with the popular local attractions and prominent homes of the area. Also included are rare images of the motel courts that began in the late 1920s along Route 1 from Kennebunk to today's Arundel, then North Kennebunkport.
