This photo, donated several years ago by a retired member of Hamden Public Works, was labeled on the back with the year and location. The history room volunteers were amazed to see where this was taken. The street is still there, of course, as well as the reason for the bridge, which has been replaced. Any ideas?
The answer will be on next month's Home page. Have fun!

This photo was taken by the prospective buyers of the plot of land on the other side of the street in anticipation of constructing an iconic Hamden landmark. The landmark has been gone for more than thirty years, but the building it housed has been re-purposed and still stands today. Hint: Some of the other buildings in this 1939 photo are still around.
