Spend an afternoon with either volume of A Days Work: (A Sampler of Historic Maine Photographs, 1860-1920, Part I is also available!), and youll make discoveries that will change how you look at Maines 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. His research has uncovered a wealth of fascinating, often quirky detail (did you know that mummy wrappings were imported from Egypt for Maine papermaking?), and he makes frequent forays into the Maine Storytelling tradition.

225 B&W photographs.
