Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Situated along the scenic Connecticut River, East Hartford was once part of the city of Hartford until the town successfully separated from the city in 1783, after numerous petitions before the general assembly. East Hartford's rich, fertile soil encouraged farmers to harvest every available acre, and tobacco grew as their main crop. As America embraced the Industrial Revolution, so did East Hartford, and it became a bustling railroad center. During the 20th century, America's fascination with aviation blossomed here with the construction of the Pratt and Whitney aircraft engine factory and the adjoining Rentschler Field airport. In East Hartford, readers will find many previously unpublished photographs that chronicle the town's history. From the smiling Silver Lane pickle logo to the trains, trolleys, historic buildings, and special events that make up its past, readers will enjoy looking at the changing face of East Hartford.
