Preservation thoughts for the day

"Memory is reality. It is better to recycle what exists, to avoid mortgaging a workable past to a non-existent future, and to think small. In the life of cities, only conservation is sanity."  -- Robert Hughes

 "Saving old buildings and neighborhoods is an enormously effective way to provide continuity in the places where we live.” – Dwight Young

“All that we call ideal in Greek or any other art, because to us it is false and visionary, was, to the makers of it, true and existent.” -- John Ruskin

 At left:  Grace Episcopal Church, Medford, Mass., H. H. Richardson, ca 1867.  The steeple is nearly scaffolded and our repointing work will continue soon.
