After the overwhelming success of our first book, The Day is pleased to bring our readers a second beautiful hard-bound book. This heirloom-quality coffee-table book picks up where our last book left off and focuses strongly on the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s in New London County.
We again are partnering with the East Lyme Historical Society; Florence Griswold Museum, Lyme Historical Society Archives; Frank L. McGuire Maritime Library, Custom House Maritime Museum; Groton Historical Society; Groton Public Library; Lyme Public Hall Association; Mystic River Historical Society; New London County Historical Society; Public Library of New London; and Waterford Historical Society to create this amazing book.
Would have thought more mention of Eugene O'Neil would have made it into the book. There were photos of him on Old Ocean Boardwalk available. The demise of the clock tower at the beach was a real disappointment to the Save Ocean Beach supporters. All in all I enjoyed seeing the New London I grew up in. Ronald DiPalma
Being born in raised in New London the pictures were more on the surrounding areas more than the New London city area. There were enough businesses that I remember weren't mentioned at all. I guess I will have to rely on my own memories of what was.
