Synopsis: Clams, oysters, and scallops have long been among the most popular seafood. Provided here is a unique and extensive examination of them, colorfully illustrated with over 350 alluring postcard and trade card images, some dating back over 100 years. A thorough text discusses the lives of these bivalves, how and where they are harvested, historical marketing strategies, their cultural and social significance, and much more. Also included is an informative look into clam bars, oyster houses, and other eateries past and present, large and small. There is also a chapter devoted to shellfish humor and a sampling of tasty recipes for readers to try. Prices are given for the cards used as illustrations.
