Historian and author Anthony Sammarco will explore some of the  sixty-eight houses, churches, libraries, clubs, squares and baseball fields that have been lost by demolition, fire, or neglect since the 1870s.  His new book, Lost Boston, is a nostalgic journey back in time to visit some of the disappeared buildings and spaces in all their grandeur. Some lost places include Boston City Hall, Boston Coliseum, Boylston Market, Merchants Exchange, Huntington Avenue Grounds, Cyclorama, East Boston Airport, Braves Field, the Massachusetts State Prison, Boston Opera House, South Boston Aquarium, and the Howard Athenaeum.

His books include Lost Boston, The History of Howard Johnson's: How a Massachusett's Soda Fountain Became a Roadside Icon, Christmas Traditions in Boston, The Baker Chocolate Company: A Sweet History, Jordan Marsh: New England's Largest Store.
