The East Cambridge exhibit stonehenge

18 Feb 2010

Outside the Middlesex County Superior Courthouse on Cambridge Street are a half dozen or so big weathered stone plinths with rusting graphics bolted to them. They’re dated 1976, from the Cambridge Historical Commission.

Isn’t it curious that they expected you to read a novel’s worth of information on these things? Thank goodness that today all exhibits are designed with text that is informative yet succinct. (Right.) Oh, and they’re ugly.

This happens to be a stop on an architectural walking tour of East Cambridge and Kendall Square. If you’re interested, a pdf is here.
