Gone to the Movies

I just found a very cool online study of the gradual evolution of the Back Bay Fens from a marshland to its current filled-in cityscape and urban water project. The link to the site is below - look for Evolutionary Infrastructure. It's a little dense in places, as professional literature often is, but it's filled with information and contains a great gallery of historical pictures. I enjoyed browsing the site, but I wanted to point out one feature - the "Movies" of how water moves through the Stony Brook culverts.
Very nice. A shout-out to Kathy Poole for the work that went into the site, and for making it available for the rest of us. This is what the Web is all about.
