"Shifting Patterns, Shifting Significance"
The Design and Social History of the Fresh Pond Area
in the 19th Century
Landscape historian Jill Sinclair (standing in front of screen)
took an enthusiastic audience of 50 on a historical tour of the activities
at Fresh Pond and Mount Auburn Cemetery in the 1800's. By vividly describing
characters and events; and using images of maps, drawings, photos, and
a movie, she made this vibrant era come alive.
Twenty copies of
her report, "Shifting Patterns, Shifting Significance: the Design
and Social History of Fresh Pond Reservation, Cambridge, MA" were
given to the winners of a free raffle.
