Book-Signing for Images of America: Windsor

November 4        1-4 p.m.

 

Please join us at a special reception on Sunday, November 4 from 1 – 4 p.m. at Windsor Historical Society as we unveil a brand-new photo book about Windsor.  Images of America:  Windsor, an Arcadia publication has something for everyone.  You’ll find historic houses and buildings and engaging pictures of Windsor residents of yesteryear showing vintage clothing and hairstyles.  Readers will discover tobacco-growing methods before the use of mechanized equipment, long-gone but not forgotten Windsor businesses, clubs, river views and buildings, turn-of-the-century views of Broad Street Green under sweeping elms, floods, trolley scenes and much, much more.

 

The book was produced to celebrate the 375th birthday of the Town of Windsor in 2008, and makes a perfect holiday gift for anyone with ties to Windsor.   Over 200 copies have been reserved already but there are plenty more!  Authors Christine Ermenc, Barbara Goodwin, Erin Stevic and Connie Thomas will be on hand to personalize copies, and refreshments will be served.  Book sponsors are Dan J. and Alice Ford Ferraina, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, and Windsor Federal Savings.  

 

Purchase price for Images of America:  Windsor is $20.  It can be sent to you for an additional $5. If purchased directly from Windsor Historical Society, 50% of the proceeds support the Society’s many school and public programs and educational activities.    The book includes many rare and never-before-published photographs from the collections of Windsor Historical Society’s research library which is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Windsor Historical Society continues to build its photographic collections of Windosr.  If you are interested in the photo donation process or know of people who might be willing to donate their historic Windsor photos, contact Windsor Historical Society Librarian Barbara Goodwin or Curator Erin Stevic at 860-688-3813.
