Parlor Ponds is a unique look at over 120 years of a  niche cultural history. The aquarium, argues author Judith Hamera, was a kind of manageable ecosystem to contrast societal growing pains of an age of mind-boggling technological advancements, from urbanization to globalization. Taking from a wide body of cultural realia including advertisements, memoirs, and enthusiast publications Hamera showcases the aquarium’s place in the progressive American thought process.
