The story of how the Harbor View Hotel transformed the town of Edgartown from a poverty stricken community to a thriving hospitality community. Today the 125-year-old Harbor View is the largest hotel on Martha’s Vineyard, and is a popular resort for summer visitors and a part of the year round Vineyard.

“For Ms. Shaw the experience of photographing Harbor View allowed her to apply her talent for landscapes and for capturing moods, since the hotel experience was so closely tied to its surroundings.”
