Barrows Avenue (list of names of residents)Barrows, Chappell and Tanner Avenues were located on West Main Street in the approximate area where Stop and Shop is now located. Housing on those streets was built in 1943 as part of the Federal Public Housing Authority's attempts to provide housing for workers in military establishments and businesses that did production work for the military. After the war's end, many returning soldiers lived there temporarily.

A reader's question.....Picture submitted by: Gloria Peterson -" I am trying to find out where this picture was taken. It looks like Columbia. This picture has a date on it of August 9, 1931. If anyone knows can you please confirm the area. I am working on a family scrapbook." Art W. Hall, Jr. wrote, "this is hairpin curve on route 2 Mohawk Trail a little east of North Adams, MA. Art sent a picture taken years earlier and it is the next one in our gallery.

ReviloPic of the Week - March 13, 2011
The postcard says, "Revilo, Willimantic, Conn.".
Does anyone know where or what it was? There were several people with the first name Revilo in the Willimantic/Mansfield area. I am wondering if Revilo might be the name of the boat in the picture? Art Hall gave us some good info. He says, " I looked in "Images of America - Coventry" and found similar photos ... with the same type of boats. No mention of Revilo. The captions say there were 4 boats owned by L. E. Wadsworth and used for giving a leisurely tour around Lake Wamgumbaug. "

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.
