Description:

This third volume of Hartford continues the celebration and remembrance of Connecticutas capital that was started with Wilson H. Faudeas first two highly successful volumes on the history of the city. This new volume features the hitherto unavailable collection of the cityas evening newspaper, the Hartford Times. This third trip into Hartfordas past takes us into the lives and celebrations of the cityas residents. The fascinating images bring us into Hartfordas unique celebrations, including Discovery Day and the Tobacco Festival. We also get a glimpse of how the cityas residents interpreted traditional holidays, with photographs depicting St. Patrickas Day revelry and shoppers braving holiday retail madness. As you peruse the pages, remember the Times Carol Sing and the Times Camp; remember when presidential hopefuls spoke from the cityas portico, vying for Hartfordas support. It is all here in Arcadia Publishingas third volume of Hartford.
