Judson Hale's Summer People vs. Townspeople

Photo from personal archives

“Summer people favor maintaining their town roads as narrow, dirt roads. Townspeople would like to widen and hard-top them for ease of plowing. 

As former Vermont Life editor Brian Vachon pointed out to me, summer people cut their kids hair at home. Townspeople's kids go to a barber.

Summer people are against growth.  Townspeople are in favor of growth. Both are against 'progress'.”

So much of what I love about coastal New England is in that great photograph. Thanks.

So true! Frankly I can see both sides.
