A PEEK AT THE PAST

Taking the Mystery Out of Boston History

HUGH O’BRIEN

B

oston’s first Irish immigrant elected mayor, Hugh O’Brien was born in 1827 in Ireland’s County Cork. As the city’s Hibernian heritage is celebrated in the days surrounding St. Patrick’s Day, now is an ideal time to look back at the life of one of the Hub’s pioneering political figures. Emigrating with his parents to Boston in 1832, O’Brien arrived on these shores nearly a generation prior to the wave of Irish immigration spurred by the infamous Potato Famine of the 1840s. That event and the ensuing exodus from Ireland led to a dramatic increase in the Irish population of Boston (reportedly more than 40% by 1885) that resulted in greater political power at the polls, one of the key elements in O’Brien’s eventual elevation to the position of Mayor of Boston. Prior to that, O’Brien rose to prominence as a successful printer and publisher, having started his own publication, the Shipping and Commercial List, after starting his career at the Boston Courier when he was only 12 years old. He entered politics when he became a Boston alderman in 1875, and parlayed that position into an ultimately victorious mayoral campaign in 1884. He served four consecutive one-year terms beginning in 1885 before he was PHOTO: COURTESY OF THE BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY

narrowly defeated by Republican banker Thomas N. Hart at the end of his final term in 1888. Well-regarded by the native-born Protestant establishment as well as his fellow Irish Catholics, O’Brien presided over the creation of such noteworthy institutions as the landmark Emerald Necklace park system (refer to listing, page 43) and the flagship Copley Square branch of the Boston Public Library (refer to listing, page 43). In addition, he widened streets, lowered taxes and was an ardent advocate for the downtrodden, especially orphans, many of whom paid their respects at O’Brien’s funeral when he passed away in 1895. Although O’Brien was a relatively sober custodian of his duties, his legacy cemented the Boston Irish political machine as a force to be reckoned with and paved the way for more flamboyant Irish and Irish-American mayors like JFK’s grandfather, John “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald, and the notorious “Rascal King,” James Michael Curley. Today, those who want to honor O’Brien can view a bronze bust at the Boston Public Library created by Irish-American sculptor John Donoghue or visit his grave at Brookline’s Holyhood Cemetery (584 Heath St., 617-327-1010, holyhood.com). —Scott Roberto BOSTONGUIDE.COM

HUBBUB

AN EARLY SPRING

If you don’t trust a prognosticating groundhog and spring isn’t coming fast enough for you, enjoy an early dose of warmth and sunshine at the Boston Flower & Garden Show (refer to listing, page 18), March 13–19 at the Seaport World Trade Center. Blossoming with vibrant color and creativity, this expo showcases garden displays fitting this year’s theme of “The Beauty of Balance” while offering lectures, demonstrations, workshops, a kids activity area and a marketplace selling the latest tools for every gardening enthusiast. A preview party benefitting The Genesis Foundation for Children—where guests can enjoy food and an adult beverage while mingling among the displays and listening to music from Danish pop and soul band Lukas Graham—takes place March 12 from 6–9 p.m.

PANORAMA

LONDON CALLING

Written by British author J.B. Priestley in 1945, An Inspector Calls (refer to listing, page 20) has since become a classic of the stage, largely thanks to director Stephen Daldry, who mounted an acclaimed revival in London in the 1990s before going on to fame helming such films as Billy Elliot, The Hours and The Reader. That production, which subsequently landed on Broadway and has been revived yet again to tour the world, finally comes to Boston’s Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre March 14–24. Set in the early 20th century, this tale of a mysterious investigator who interrupts the festivities of a well-to-do family is the rare thriller that makes audiences consider serious questions about morality and personal responsibility. BOTTOM PHOTO: MARK DOUET


DANCING DOLL

Loosely based on a work by the same author that inspired the seminal holiday ballet The Nutcracker and featuring choreography by George Balanchine, Boston Ballet’s production of Coppélia (refer to listing, page 16) comes to the Boston Opera House March 21–31. E.T.A. Hoffmann’s short story “Der Sandmann” forms the framework of this tale of a young couple and their encounters with Dr. Coppélius, an inventor and toymaker who wishes his lifelike doll to come to life. Set to the score of the original 1870 version by French composer Léo Delibes, Coppélia was hailed as “engaging throughout, with high-spirited performances” by The Boston Globe when it was mounted by Boston Ballet in 2013.

A HOT TIME AT THE ZOO

Experience an exotic getaway without leaving Boston when the Franklin Park Zoo (refer to listing, page 45) hosts its Fun in the Tropics event on March 23 from 5–7:30 p.m. Housed in the facility’s ever-temperate Tropical Forest enclosure, this frolic for the 21-and-over crowd gives visitors the opportunity to wander after-hours among displays featuring Western lowland gorillas, ring-tail lemurs, pygmy hippos and more, all while donning festive luau attire, partaking in animal-themed games, marvelling at upclose animal encounters hosted by zoo staff and enjoying beer, wine and appetizers. A $40 ticket allows admission, a free drink ticket and the knowledge that the proceeds help the zoo further its educational and conservation mission.

A PUB ABOVE

An upscale take on the English tavern, Blake’s Kitchen & Bar (Hotel Indigo, 276 Friend St., 617-720-7834, blakesboston.com) is the latest addition to the growing West End dining scene. Updates on classic pub and New England favorites—including celery salt chicken wings, maple rosemary steak tips, raw oysters, a clam bake with local steamers and mussels, and, of course, a lobster roll­—are featured, as well as a bar pouring creative versions of tried-and-true cocktails and local craft beer on tap. There’s even an exclusive brew—a saison dubbed, appropriately enough, Blake’s Honey Blond—made in conjunction with Cambridge Brewing Co. Hungry for breakfast? In addition to dinner, Blake’s serves early morning dishes from lobster Benedict to avocado toast, all just steps away from TD Garden. —Scott Roberto TOP PHOTO: GENE SCHIAVONE; BOTTOM PHOTO: BRIAN SAMUELS
