Preservation Style

Isaac Kremer/ March 6, 2021/ / 0 comments

A commercial kit of readymade colors and symbols guaranteed to transform any Main Street into a Walt Disney-Norman Rockwell dream of Americana. This, according to Mary Means, a field staff for the National Trust for Historic Preservation as cited in The Boston Globe, April 21, 1977, p. C1. The article went on to critique “Preservation Style wipes out the near-past in favor of a (partly imagined) distant past.” Photo from Manchester, Vermont, 2023. (Kremer, 2023)
