6:30PM Frozen Over: Boston’s Nineteenth Century Ice Age. The second talk in the 2020 Lowell Lecture Series, presented by the Paul Revere House in partnership with Revolutionary Spaces and Boston’s Green Ribbon Commission. Andrew Robichaud, Assistant Professor of History, Boston University, will discuss how the Boston area became a key center of ice production and trade in the nineteenth century. As ice became a pervasive commodity, it remade everyday life in important ways. This talk explores those transformations in what was Boston’s economic and cultural “ice age,” and considers its lasting implications. Watch the talk here https://youtu.be/5S9TEGQoPvw; see additional details here.
