The demolition of the architecturally unique 1907 Kingston Post Office in 1970 was a turning point for historic preservation in Kingston. In this discussion of the history of both the post office itself and its subsequent destruction, filmmaker Stephen Blauweiss will present rare photographs and historic postcards about the “life” and “death” of this iconic building. Book signing to follow.

His 25 years of experience encompass all aspects, from concept through final production, and he has produced over 75 short films, 3 features, and several music videos.
