Book Description 
  
Ike was president and JFK was running for the Senate. The interstate highway system was snaking across the map, and New England traditions were retreating only grudgingly.  
  
To Boston in the 1950s came a young photographer named Verner Reed. His collection of New England images—most of them taken for Life magazine—are heart-warming reminders of a lost world as near as your own childhood.  
  
The Verner Reed collection, now maintained by the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, is the subject of a new retrospective. Opening at the Museum of Our National Heritage in Lexington, Massachusetts, in September 2004, the show will tour select New England venues. A Changing World is a beautifully produced hardcover edition of the show catalog, printed in rich black-and-white duotones, with a foreword by SPNEA historian John Stomberg.  
  
You will be a witness to events of the 1950s and 1960s, including:  
  
John F. Kennedy’s run for the Senate  
  
The vigil for Julius and Ethel Rosenberg  
  
The aftermath of the Brinks robbery  
  
A visit to Harvard by T. S. Eliot  
  
A doll wedding at the home of Tasha Tudor  
  
You will also enjoy dozens of New England scenes from a time gone by—a taffy pull, a country fair, headlines posted on chalkboards along Boston’s “Newspaper Row”—captured by the extraordinarily perceptive eye of Verner Reed.
