In 1931, the land adjacent to the Camden Public Library was transformed into the Camden Amphitheatre.

Designed by the prominent landscape architect Fletcher Steele on land donated by Mary Louise Curtis Bok, the amphitheatre was intended to be a public space where concerts, plays and programs could be staged.

This picture shows the amphitheatre from side to side, with the back of the Camden Public Library in the background. Workers are putting finishing touches on the lawn.
