Annual Meeting/Anthony M. Sammarco Lecture
Come to hear an update on the Friends' activities this year after which Anthony M. Sammarco will speak on his new best selling book Lost Boston with a book signing to follow. Copies will be available for purchase for $18.95. Lost Boston has 68 essays on once well known institutions that failed to stand the test of time, and were either demolished, lost to fire or to neglect. The book has as many essays on neighborhood institutions as it does on downtown Boston. It includes the once popular Readville Trotting Park, the Boston Garden, the City Point Aquarium, Jordan Marsh Department Store, Scollay, Haymarket & Pemberton Squares, along with the Parker House, Tremont House and Hotel Pelham.
There is no section of America half so good to live in as splendid old New England – And there is no city on this continent so lovely and lovable as Boston. Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens,) 1871
