Lost Boston by Anthony M. Sammarco was published in 2014 by Pavilion of Great Britain. The book has sixty eight essays on once well known institutions that failed to stand the test of time, and were either demolished, lost to fire or neglect. The book, which also is unique as it has as many essays on neighborhood institutions as it does on downtown Boston, includes the once popular Readville Trotting Park, The Boston Garden and the City Point Aquarium, the Jordan Marsh Department Store, Scollay and Pemberton Squares, the Parker House, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
A book signing and reception will follow the lecture with copies available for purchase.
