Victorian Hartford (CT) (Postcard History Series)

From workers’ housing to the grand homes of industrialists, prosperous Hartford experienced an explosion of Victorian building that turned this capital city into a rich mixture of culture, beauty, and business. The capital of the insurance industry, Hartford was also home to the first public art museum, the Wadsworth Atheneum; the first municipal rose garden, Elizabeth Park; and colossal factories that produced Colt firearms, typewriters, sewing machines, and even the first automobiles. Victorian Hartford showcases the city’s great architecture through historic images, some of which are the only evidence of the city’s former grandeur, and provides glimpses into a world long gone.
