JumboWhen Barnum and Bailey's Circus brought Jumbo, the largest elephant in captivity, from England to the United States in the 1880s, it hit the national headlines. The Willimantic Linen Company soon jumped on the bandwagon and produced this card. It depicts Jumbo being dragged through the streets of New York City with unbreakable Willimantic cotton thread!

Pic of the Week - December 31, 2015Since the early 1950s, the Fire Department's Bank Street Headquarters was heavily decorated for the Christmas and New Year's Holidays. Firefighters who put the decorations up had memories of the preparations. One said that one of the difficulties of putting up the decorations was that the department's "cherry picker" truck would sometimes have to be moved quickly if other apparatus was called out for an emergency.
