Sunday Afternoon Lectures, 1951

What a lovely way to spend a late Sunday afternoon in the fall. I would go to all of these, if only for the chance to ask questions afterwards.

    umpteen styles of outdoor lamps, most of which you’ve researched and piqued our interest about, and, as usual, none of them match in this picture??

      Yes! It’s a weird spot where two lines of different styles cross. I was interested to see that the German High Hat style dominated the Boston Globes in the battle for lamp post supremacy. Special treat coming tomorrow . . .

    Is Mrs. Drew Katherine Drew?

    I get a kick out of the altered title of Carroll Camden’s lecture. His classic book “The Elizabethan Woman” was about to be published (1952), so I’m guessing he decided just to excerpt something out of the manuscript rather than write a whole new piece.
