are constantly changing. People come and go. Buildings
rise and fall. Roads are built and grow to accommodate
new forms of transportation. Woodlands are logged for fields
that later became office parks and subdivisions. Of
all the records kept of Windsor, photographs provide some of
the best visual details of the town’s changing landscape.
Then and Now: A Photo History
highlights photographs from every Windsor village:
Deerfield, Hayden Station, Poquonock, Rainbow, and Wilson,
as well as Windsor Center. Each section features series of
photographs of same view taken in the early 20th, the mid-20th,
and early 21st centuries. By juxtaposing
photographs of the same landscape over fifty-year intervals,
the exhibition encourages viewers to discover what has
changed and what has remained the same about each scene.
Then and Now
is a fun and interactive way for the visitors to explore
Windsor through the lenses of economic, social, and
technological change. By looking at the town’s
evolution over the past century, the show also encourages
visitors to consider current town issues and envision
Windsor’s bright future.
