Description

Two copies of the souvenir program from "The Pageant of Cape Cod," a production put on from August 15-19, 1914, on the banks of the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne. The cover features an illustration of a fisherman piloting a boat with a seagull overhead, a lighthouse in the background, and another ship in the distance. The pageant is described in the program as "a magnificent out-door presentation of the drama of the history of the Cape for three hundred years and a prophesy of its future."
