The East Boston Friends of the Library invites you to a lecture by Anthony Sammarco titled Lost Boston Thursday August 27th at 6:pm. 

Local author and historian, Anthony M. Sammarco presents a fascinating look at many well known institutions that failed to stand the test of time, and were either demolished, lost to fire or neglect.  

Based on his book, Lost Boston, this presentation takes a look at both neighborhood and downtown institutions including The Boston Garden, City Point Aquarium, Jordan Marsh Department Store, Scollay, Haymarket and Pemberton Squares, as well as East Boston Airport and the Penny Ferry.
