Willimantic Linen Company's Number Three MillThis 1910 postcard depicts the Willimantic Linen Company's Number Three Mill. It was erected in 1845 by the Wellesville Company on the site of Willimantic's first cotton mill built by Perez Richmond in 1822. The Wellesville mill became part of the Linen Company in 1876. It was demolished in the late 1920s, and stood on the city's Recreation Park. This idyllic view depicts the mill raceway and provides a somewhat over romantic view of industrialization, in a style known as "the factory in the garden."

People Parade Back in the 80s, 3 artists created a painting of Main St. and the people who were often seen there, including many of the shopkeepers. It is hanging in the Town Hall lobby. Years ago, I took pictures of the mural, divided them up into 9 sections and put a number near each person, hoping to be able to identify as many as possible. I couldn't get as close as I wanted to the original picture because there was a big framed poster in front of it. But if there is enough interest, I'll go back and take more pics in a higher resolution.This is the 3rd of 9 pictures. Recognize anybody?
