Willimantic Traction Co. trolleyAda Kerachsky Albright says, "The trolley is heading south on the Old South Windham Road, crossing the intersection of Kick Hill Road and about to go up Babcock Hill Road. In the far background is Route 32 which runs parallel to the old South Windham Road. My family lived in what had been the old schoolhouse on Babcock Hill Road, and before the land across the road from our house was developed, there was a lane that had once been a trolley lane and went to the short road paralleling Route 32 that starts behind where the gas station is/was.

Coventry - Pic of the Week - February 05, 2011
This is a postcard pic from a group of postcards sent to us by Dick Donovan. S. Rand wrote to us and said, "The location of this waterwork was on the north side of Woods Lane in Coventry. The factory was on the south side of the lane. The dam and the remains of the mill pond remain as does part of the foundation of the factory. The UMC factory was actually located located across from the old Coventry Roller Carnival/Flea Market pavillion on Lake St. The UMC mill was originally a grist mill and the building still exists! There was a trolley crossing located where the blue steel tank is at this location. This was part of my old stomping grounds in my younger years. "
