At one time, there were so many downed vessels off the coast near the town we now know as Truro, it was known as Dangerfield. The name Truro was borrowed from a Cornish town that looks similar– the rolling hills and small village. There is plenty of danger taking place in the sequel to the popular mystery Remaining in Provincetown by S.N. Cook. Set in Truro during the summer, the landmarks of Truro figure prominently in the story line. Haven’t read Remaining in Provincetown yet?

The antique postcard shown in this blog post, shows Truro Town Hall and Federated Church on Storm Hill in Truro. The cemetery has tombstones dating back to the 1700s. A color lithograph print, the card was published when it only cost one penny to mail a postcard in the United States.
