Greenwich is a southeastern Connecticut town well-known for its affluent homes and natural beauty. In the twentieth century, the town moved from a farming to a mercantile economy, and its population rose from twelve thousand to more than sixty thousand. The community consists of a number of distinct areas, just as it was one hundred years ago, and perhaps more than any other aspect, that neighborhood feeling has survived and even strengthened as new growth and new circumstances have continued to evolve. Greenwich is an eye-catching compilation of historical images, an overview of all that has made this outstanding community what it is: Greenwich Avenue, the excellent schools, the landmark churches, the stately homes, the people and their elegant lifestyle, the many distinctive neighborhoods, the clubs, and the wonderful parks, beaches, and islands. It is also a visual record of how things have changed during the twentieth century. Greenwich provides a fascinating perspective on the past and the present, weaving a rich tapestry of images into a coherent portrait of a beautiful New England town.
