St Anne’s in the Fields Episcopal Church really is in the fields, a fair drive from Boston; but there’s something going on here that’s worth the trip. About once a month, the church resurrects the Golden Age of film by screening silent movies with live piano accompaniment! The program is popular with adults and kids alike, and it’s certainly unusual. Where else can you watch Charlie Chaplin, listen to live piano music, and eat ice cream all at the same time? Admission is $4, and $2 for children. Call for upcoming schedules.

A type of person we still see today, rushing out to gaze at disasters. The Illustrated London News goes on: Divers employed on the Pegasus steamer at Holy Island have succeeded in picking up an additional number of dead bodies. On 11 November 1843 another quote from the same paper read: A relic of the Pegasus. The Journal des Debats states: A few days since, a bottle was found on the coast of Holland, containing a slip of paper, on which was written Pegasus steamer, to Fern Islands, night of Wednesday, July 1843. In great distress: struck upon the rocks. On board 55 persons, vessel must go down, and no Grace Darling.’ Although how anyone on a sinking ship and in panic would have the presence of mind to sit down, calmly write a letter and place it in a bottle makes me suspect the work of another twisted personality. The wreck ofthe paddle steamer Pegasus lies midway between the Goldstone Rock and St Nicholas Rock, in a general depth of 15 metres on the lowest astronomical tide. The wooden hull has long since gone, but the boiler and steam engine can still be seen. The seabed is quite flat, with numerous little mussels attached to everything and lots of various types of flatfish.
