Many years ago, William Varrell was talking with an old carpenter's wife in Rye. "Father was the town photographer. We still have the glass negatives," she mentioned. Thus began Varrell's fascination with the old images that breathe new life into long-forgotten events and faces from Rye's past. Rye is a small town without major industries or impressive public buildings, but it has a long and colorful history. Alas, there were no cameras to record the colonial settlements, the Native American massacres, or Rye's proud role in the Revolutionary War. Through more than two hundred vintage images, Ipswich takes the reader on an exciting journey through the history of this unique town. It presents the town's creative artists, the lives and occupations of its everyday citizens, beautiful landscapes, the mills and the country stores, and the ships and shipwrecks that met the Ipswich coast.

Ipswich is a coastal town in Essex County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 13,175 at the 2010 census. Home to Willowdale State Forest and Sandy Point State Reservation, Ipswich includes the southern part of Plum Island (Massachusetts). A residential community with a vibrant tourism industry, the town is famous for its clams, celebrated annually at the Ipswich Chowderfest, and for Crane Beach, a barrier beach near the Crane estate. Ipswich was incorporated as a town in 1634.

Since Ipswich's founding in 1634, the town has been home to farmers and fishermen, sea captains and furniture makers, and mill workers and clammers. Wealthy summer residents, artists, and photographers discovered Ipswich years later, capturing in photographs the town's rural landscapes, magnificent beaches, modest streetscapes, busy waterfront, local celebrations, and personalities. Ipswich Revisited provides a glimpse into this town's rich past. Included here are photographs of the interiors of familiar buildings, such as the 1677 Whipple House, the 1800 Heard House, and the 1920s Ipswich Mills Hosiery Shop, and notable natives, such as the Appleton family, artists Arthur Wesley Dow and Carl Nordstrom, and Native American princess Emma Safford.
