Publication Out About Magazine Beach: History on the Charles

At our June 15th Celebration we debuted History on the Charles: The Story of Captain’s Island and its Powder Magazine, by Nina S. Cohen and Marilyn Wellons. This fascinating history is the result of over a year of primary research and study. A limited number of paper copies are available for $5 by contacting me at The 14-page booklet is also available on-line at Click on History. Thanks to Nina and Marilyn for their scholarship and to Michael Schaffer, Brian Conway and Sarah Morris for their design work and editing.
