The Port of New Bedford, Massachusetts has transformed itself many times in the past, adapting to change in order to survive and thrive. In this online Curator Talk, Michael P. Dyer, Curator of Maritime History, will use historical photographs featured in the #InsideOut exhibition “The River and the Rail: The Industrial Evolution of the Port of New Bedford” to reveal some of the changes seen along the waterfront from the late 19th century through the mid-20th century. Travel through time from the waning days of whaling to the rise of coal and manufacturing industries, and on to the demise and re-birth of the mills. This online event is free but you must register.

See the exhibition “Inside Out! The River and the Rail: The Industrial Evolution of the Port of New Bedford” any day of the week on the #WhalingMuseum plaza from September 17 through September 30. “Inside Out!” is supported in part by BayCoast Bank.
