Historical Narrative: As per Josephine Del Deo (1977): The studio occupied by Pauline Palmer from about 1910 through the '20s and '30s was a typical artist's studio of that period. It was occupied subsequently by other artist who valued its excellent north light, and it is one of those charming Provincetown studios for which the town is famous. NEED HISTORY OF PAULINE
