A standing-room-only crowd attended Chair Robin Williams’ public talk, “History Underfoot: Appreciating the Significance of Savannah’s Street and Sidewalk Pavement,” delivered as part of the Friends of Massie Lecture Series on January 24.  His research on historic street pavement has evidently struck a nerve with public interest.

As part of his research, Williams visited numerous American cities during 2016, documenting examples of historic street and sidewalk pavement and curbs, which are shared through his website historicpavement.com.
