Boston Victorian Architecture Stephen Jerome, Historian
In 1931, the photographer Walker Evans (1903-1975), later famous for his work documenting the effects of the Depression for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), joined Lincoln Kirstein (1907-1996), his early promoter, and architect/poet John Wheelwright (1897-1940) in a project to photograph Victorian architecture for a book Wheelwright was writing on this subject. Many of the resulting iconic images are in the permanent collections of museums. Join Stephen Jerome, Boston architectural and social historian, for a slideshow about this rare archive of Victorian architecture and the three luminaries behind it.
