In 1902 Dalton wrote probably the finest and most complete history of the Life-Saving Service and its 13 stations on the outer reaches of Cape Cod . In it he looked at each of the 13 stations individually including their men, equipment, construction and modifications of the buildings, rescues, and much more. It was profusely illustrated with over 100 fine b/w photographs. During this period, surfman Asa Cobb Paine Lombard along with his Cahoon’s Hollow companion, Eugene Young, gave lectures at the time in the eastern part of Massachusetts describing the wrecks that occurred on Cape Cod from Monomoy to Provincetown , explaining how rescue attempts were made, and the operations of the United States Life Saving Service. The proceeds from the lectures were used to buy station personnel the necessary extras needed to perform their duties — equipment not provided by the government. In addition, other surfmen gave similar lectures, all using similar b/w projection slides using these images from Dalton’s book and others. This lot of 15 glass projection slides is from such a set used for these lectures. Crystal clear views include: Surfman E. S. Dyer, Pamet River LSS, oldest surfman in the U.S.L.S.S.; wreck Katie J. Barrett breaking up on beach; ship A. S. Ropes dismasted off Provincetown; Highland LSS crew; wreck Panchita driven ashore in Provincetown; High Head LSS; High Head LSS crew; Wood End LSS crew; Nauset LSS crew; Monomoy LSS; Keeper Seth Ellis, Keeper Monomoy LSS; Keeper Joseph Kelley, Monomoy Point LSS; Schooner ashore; wreckage on beach; dismasted schooner. The views are superb and crystal clear, perfect for printing or projecting in a proper projector. Slides measures 3 ¼” x 4” and presents a superb, clear image. Two slides have crack but are intact, remaining near fine. (#28122) (VG+).
