Trumbull, Connecticut, was a small community with a lush landscape spotted with farms and light industries before the era of World War II. After the war, many soldiers returned to the states and came to Trumbull looking for homes. The explosion of Trumbull's economic market caused much of the farmland to become housing developments to accommodate the veterans and their families. This volume of nearly two hundred images looks back at Trumbull during the quieter era between 1890 and 1940, before the town was flooded with the mad rush of people and businesses. These fifty years detail a history marked by the prosperous times of the early twentieth century, the pain and anguish of World War I, and the gloomy grip of the Depression. Small-town life comes alive in the faces and places of Trumbull, and these photographs and their stories take a reader back into a time that seems so much simpler than today's hustle and bustle.
