The Ridges - RT 32 at Willimantic-Mansfield linePic of the Week - February 7, 2013 Thank you to Ed Breen of Columbia who wrote:
"That picture brought great memories for me. The picture is the old trolley waiting area that was located in "The Ridges" area of Mansfield on the corner of Route 32 and Old Kent Road. The dead end street in the background is Old Kent Road. In 1945 I graduated from the three room Ridges School that was located at the very end of Old Kent Road. The trolley, that had run from Coventry Lake to Norwich, had long disappeared, but all the kids in that area would gather at the waiting area for the school bus to Windham High School.

John Ferreri said, "This looks a lot like Rt 195 in Storrs. Horsebarn Hill in particular. The view is to the south, toward Willimantic but taken west of the campus. Today, the "towers" dorms would be on your right. "

Pollack's Mill addition This photo shows the construction of an addition to the Pollack Mill (also known as the Conantville Mill). The older section of the mill later became home to the famous Shaboo nightclub. Since this addition was on the backside of the mill, it was not often seen by patrons of the place, who mostly arrived after dark and entered the front door next to the big Shaboo Inn sign. Thank you to Walker for the added information.

StorrsPic of the Week - January 29 2010
The postcard caption says, "Rear view with lake. Connecticut Agricultural College, Storrs, Conn.". We think it's a rare pic because of the direction from which it was taken.
