Lower Cape Scenic From the 1950s & 60s!

If you have read my short bio you’d know that my first memories of the Cape evolve around Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown….I recently found a treasure trove of slides taken by my father, grandfather, and other relatives depicting Cape life back in the 1950s & 60s…names, buildings, boats and cars have changed, but in many ways these views (like Cape Cod) seem timeless….Enjoy!

Provincetown Fishing Fleet

By Spencer Kennard

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
