Historic Boardwalk T-Shirts: A Leap Into the Past

Sales begin @ noon on Saturday, July 22

$25 ea  | Ultra Cotton® 6 oz. T-Shirt | heather gray | M, L, XL | 

$10 shipping & handling per item

Demolition of the storm-damaged Sandwich Boardwalk began in July. It has been hard for many to say goodbye to the iconic structure. In particular, two aspects of the lost boardwalk evoke nostalgia - its rich history (despite several rebuilds through the years) and the tradition of children jumping from it into the marsh below, a favorite summertime activity for both residents and visitors.

To commemorate the old boardwalk, FOSTA is offering one-of-a-kind t-shirts imprinted with an historic color photo of the “plank walk,” as it was once called. The shirts are available for $25 in sizes M, L and XL. 

FOSTA, a non-profit organization devoted to helping preserve Sandwich’s historic treasures, first opted to design and sell the t-shirts as a fundraiser for the Town Archives, but decided it was equally important to keep the price affordable so that more people might be able to enjoy wearing or giving this fun item.

 

If you would like to “take a leap into the past” and purchase a boardwalk t-shirt, they are available for purchase starting Saturday, July 22, at noon. (nline or bring a check to the Town Archives located in the Sandwich Public Library.

Portrait of young Dodge MacKnight painted by John Peter Russell

American post-Impressionist painter Dodge MacKnight called Sandwich his home after moving here in 1900 to a house he named "The Hedges" on Route 6A where he painted this watercolor of his back yard kitchen garden.

It is illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps and charts, as well as an extensive bibliography. Sandwich, A Cape Cod Town offers a wealth of historical information on a town built by the ocean and molded by the people who lived there.
