Sitting in Style: Unabridged Reflections on the Swedenborgian Chair
A lecture by Timothy L. Hansen
Sunday, 7 June 2015
San Francisco Swedenborgian Church
2107 Lyon Street, San Francisco
If you’ve missed Tim Hansen’s fascinating lecture about the birth of the Mission-style chair in our Fall 2013 series, here’s another chance. His illustrated talk will focus on American Arts & Crafts design; A.J. Forbes & Son, the manufacturers of the Swedenborgian chair; and the question of the chair’s designer and its influence.

Saturday, 23 May
Led by Paul Grunland
This subdivision became part of Berkeley in 1959, along with the neighboring subdivision of Park Hills, rounding out the north and east boundaries of our city. Starting at the EBMUD reservoir at the top of Spruce Street, we will explore an area once used by plant nurseries and the Pacific Lutheran Seminary at the top of Marin Avenue. The route is uphill, so prepare for an aerobic walk.
