Great Boston Fires

presented by David Kruh
Tuesday September 26, 7:00 pm
Memorial Hall   FREE

A new slide show from David Kruh will look at these devastating fires and their impact on Boston, from the many great fires of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries (including the truly Great Fire of 1872), the Cocoanut Grove tragedy of 1942 and the Vendome fire of 1972. How did these fires happen? What was learned from these events? What, if anything, was done to try to prevent similar catastrophes? David's newest slide show, filled with images from these events, answers these and other questions.
