Underground Bomb Shelter on Francis Ave.; More!

MID-CAMBRIDGE—Here's a few more details on the fabulous house at 30 Francis Avenue that used to belong to economist John Kenneth Galbraith, via an article on its current tenants: "Gaiman led a small group on an impromptu tour of the basement. The highlight, at least for us, was the underground bomb shelter, which is filled these days with books and records, and a hidden hot tub and sauna, whose benches clearly were designed to accommodate Galbraith's 6-foot-8 frame."
