Join us and John Hayden, an energy engineer with Reynolds Energy Services, Harrisburg, as he discusses the past, present and future of Pennsylvania’s industrial communities. T.M. Fowler’s bird’s-eye views were highly regarded for their accurate depiction of not just buildings but infrastructure – the industries and transportation systems that allowed these towns and cities to grow and prosper in the decades after the Civil War. By drawing on satellite imagery and other resources, Mr. Hayden will discuss some of the ways that Fowler’s views can be used to guide municipalities as they look to modernize their local economies and literally build on their past.
This is the second of three “Learn at Lunchtime” talks being offered in April in conjunction with the Museum’s current exhibition, ‘Everything of Interest Shown’: T.M. Fowler’s Bird’s-Eye Views of Pennsylvania, 1885-1905. The exhibit runs through May 6.
This program is included with General Admission to the Museum.
