A short film by Justin Goodstein for Historic New England and the Haymarket Pushcart Association
Presented by Historic New England and Suffolk University
7:30 PM on Wednesday, July 8
Estimated runtime: 30 minutes
Since the 1830s, Boston's Haymarket has served a constant stream of longtime residents, newly arrived immigrants, students, and tourists. Despite economic downturns, the advent of the supermarket, and massive construction projects from the Central Artery to the Big Dig, the Haymarket continues to be an economically vital and colorful gathering place for the city. Haymarket uses photographs, oral history interviews with workers, shoppers, fans and historians to tell the story of this beloved marketplace. An exhibition of photographs runs concurrently at the Suffolk University Adams Gallery.
Following the film, Bob Allison of Suffolk University will lead a talk back with the audience.
