with Jeff Richman
Thursday, December 2nd, 12pm
Enjoy your own lunch from the comfort of your home with Historian Jeff Richman. Mr. Richman has been the fulltime historian at Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery since 2007. His fifth and latest book, Building the Brooklyn Bridge, 1869-1883: An Illustrated History with Images in 3D, has just been published. The book features 252 images--including original drawings by the bridge engineers and photographs, including 44 stereo views that are reproduced as 3D anaglyphs in the book, and woodcuts from a wonderful private collection. Join us for a narrated slideshow and about how the iconic Brooklyn Bridge came into being, its human drama, and what makes it so special.
Presentation will last 45 minutes with time for commentary and Q&A from participants.
