Willimantic's Redevelopment periodThis is the southwest corner of Valley and Jackson Streets. From the left, the storefronts were occupied in the 1960s by Superior Electronics and George Bourey’s “College Shop”. The building with “72” painted on it had an entrance on Valley Street and was home to Borodach’s Grocery Store. Joseph "Al" Beaulieu told us that, "the first building to the left was Samson Meat Market, then The College Shop, and Ame Bordack Meat Market, which caught fire on the second floor, we had one of our Fire Fighters go through the floor that night . I believe the building was owned by a Mrs Haddad."

Old Route 32 in South WindhamRetired Willimantic Fire Captain Joseph “Al” Beaulieu provided this information on last week’s picture. “The brick building on the left of the photo is the present gray vinyl covered building on the northeast corner of 32 and 203. The second and third buildings on the picture’s left are gone. RT 32 then curves right (at the small house almost in the middle of the picture). That is today’s Old Windham Road and is the original RT 32. That small house is the one just before the gas station. The big tree in the center of the picture is still there and is showing the effects of the ’38 hurricane. “Al” pointed out that you can still see the same branch configuration. A few years later, the present day 32 as we know it was constructed. Pic of the Week February 27, 2014
