L-R Linda Brayton, Jennifer Holmgren, Lisa Sawall (Sleeper’s grand niece) before a special Beauport Sleeper McCann tour focusing on the  correspondence and collaboration of Sleeper and architect Halfdan Hanson which was led by Lorna.

 

Photographs in this post are from yesterday’s special Beauport Sleeper McCann program, stemming from the Cape Ann Museum Design/Build exhibition. Lorna Condon, senior curator of Historic New England’s Library and Archives, led this tremendous tour.

Neither Sleeper not Hanson family members knew they’d be there together at this tour. Yet members of both  families wore the same shoes!
