2 pm, Sunday, May 15th at 195 Boston Street, Dorchester, MA 02125
The Dorchester Historical Society’s program for May is a talk by Joe Bagley, the city archaeologist, and his new book The History of Boston in 50 Artifacts. Joe highlights a fascinating hodge-podge of history–from ancient fishing grounds to Jazz Age red-light districts–and demonstrates how these objects offer a unique and accessible introduction to Boston’s history and physical culture.
The Society will take a few minutes at the beginning of the meeting to hold its annual meeting. Then we will hand the floor over to Joe.
