Most historic bridge in WillimanticThis bridge is one of the most historic in Willimantic, but few know of its existence. It is pictured here in a 1939 aerial view. The bridge was built under electric floodlight in 1880. It is well known however to those who worked at the American Thread Company. It was the connection to Mill Number Four, the large cotton mill destroyed by fire in 1995.

Memorial Day, 1911This photo shows the 1911 Memorial Day parade.The drum belonged to Wheeler's American Band which accompanied the Police Department in that parade and behind Wheeler's was the local National Guard Company, Company "L". In back of Company "L" is the French-Canadian paramilitary organization, Garde Florimond. They had already marched up Main St. and were "picking up" the Grand Army of the Republic and Women’s Relief Corps Floral Wagon, The Spanish-American War veterans and a large contingent of children from Natchaug School for the march to Willimantic Cemetery. The parade of 1911 was the first in which a group of schoolchildren was asked to participate. Pic of the Week September 5, 2013

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

Rock Garden Restaurant PlacematFor many years, the Rock Garden was a popular Willimantic Restaurant. It was foreclosed on by the IRS in 1971. It reopened but again suffered foreclosure in 1972. The building was later bought by a different company and became "Caesar's Palace". That too went out of business. (Photo courtesy of Stan)
