A Day’s Work: A Sampler of Historic Maine Photographs, 1860-1920 II By W.H. Bunting

These extraordinary collections of photographs and narrative captions have wide appeal to anyone interested in Maine's past. Spend an afternoon with either volume of A Day's Work, and you'll make discoveries that will change how you look at Maine's passing scene. Bunting has a knack for spotting the unusual in a photograph, or some minor detail that, in fact, tells a major story about the how and why. From granite quarry operations to an itinerant cobbler in a sailing scow to hootchie cootchie dancers at the state fair to deepwater ships, his page-long captions place these images in social and economic context but this is not dry history.

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
