Peterborough Historical Society September 2022 Lecture (Virtual): “The Evolution of the Garage: The Effects of Technology on the Built Landscape” with Jennifer Guerin

September 20, 2022 @ 7:30 pm

Speaker: Jennifer Guerin

The automobile’s impact on society and the economy has been pervasive. Think of the petroleum industry, urban and suburban development, highway infrastructure, rural connectivity, leisure, recreation, travel, tourism. Domestic architecture and landscape have not escaped the automobile’s transformative power. Jennifer Guerin, Heritage Researcher for the City of Peterborough, examines the hitherto unexplored development of the garage as a stand-alone structure and its evolution as an integral part of house design.

A question and answer period will follow the speaker’s presentation.

Tuesday, 20 September 2022, 7:30 p.m. on Zoom. Register to attend by sending an email note to with “Garage” in the subject line. Registrants subsequently will be sent the link to join the meeting. Deadline to register is noon, 20 September.
