Product Features

What was Stratford like early in the last century? Postcards recorded important scenes and activities. Local shops often made up their own cards and folders, which residents collected and shared with friends and relatives. This postcard history of Stratford draws on such cards to show commercial and recreational life in the town's neighborhoods and along its shore. Cards depicting the early aviation industry and little-known 1912 army maneuvers in Stratford are included here. Informative captions expand on these images with stories about the town and its people.
