Brooklyn BridgeThe Willimantic Linen Company were early pioneers in the production of color lithographic advertising cards. This card was published in 1883, and depicts the recently completed Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, constructed from Willimantic cotton thread, spools, bobbins, and thread packing cases. Note the juxtaposition of the largest mill in the world. The Linen Company's Mill Number Four, built in 1880, floats in the sky above the world's largest bridge.

The Odell Chapman Continental Drum Corps“Chronicle” reader Bob Castillo correctly identified this photo as the Thread City Continentals and their leader, Mr. Odell Chapman who was a Drummer, Drum Major, and Master Drum Builder. Every drum in that photograph taken in front of the Town Hall was built by Mr. Chapman (front, center center with all the medals). Note all the trophies on the ground in front of the corps. They were strong competitors and obviously very proficient at their art.
