- Author: Wilson H. Faude
This third volume of Hartford continues the celebration and remembrance of Connecticut's capital that was started with Wilson H. Faude's first two highly successful volumes on the history of the city. This new volume features the hitherto unavailable collection of the city's evening newspaper, the Hartford Times. This third trip into Hartford's past takes us into the lives and celebrations of the city's residents. The fascinating images bring us into Hartford's unique celebrations, including Discovery Day and the Tobacco Festival. We also get a glimpse of how the city's residents interpreted traditional holidays, with photographs depicting St. Patrick's 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 city's portico, vying for Hartford's support. It is all here in Arcadia Publishing's third volume of Hartford.
