THE WEST END MUSEUM 150 Staniford Street, Suite 7, Boston, MA (On Lomasney Way) 617-723-2125 CONNECTIONS NORTH: BRIDGES OF THE WEST END - Now through April 20, 2013. For 150 years, Harvard college depended on an unusual source of income: its ferry. Harvard opposed attempts to build bridges, claiming that more visitors would put "scholars in danger of being too much interrupted in their studies & hurt in their morals." It's easy to forget that Boston is a peninsula surrounded by water, but until the Charles River Bridge was built in 1786 there were only two ways to get to Cambridge: take the Charlestown ferry, owned by the Harvard Corporation, or make an 8 mile journey overland via Boston Neck (Washington Street) through Roxbury and Brookllne. Connections North tells a story spanning 300 years about the bridges that changed not only the area immediately around the Charles, but the entire face of Boston, which benefited from new resources brought in from the north. The program covers the Charles River Bridge. West Boston Bridge, Canal Bridge and Warren Bridge, along with their design, construction and the political intrigues they stirred up! The cost is free but you need to call the museum at 617-723-2125 to register. WILBUR THEATRE 246 Tremont St., Boston, MA 800-745-3000 BOB SAGET -- Friday. March i, 2013 at 7:30 pro.
