A Town-by-town Illustrated HistoryBook - 2009
A heavily-illustrated history of the shoreline, from New York State to Rhode Island.
Connecticut Coast is a richly illustrated history of the Nutmeg State’s storied shoreline, from New York State to Rhode Island. Researched and written by a longtime expert in Connecticut history, it comprises a brief narrative on each of the twenty-four shoreline communities, accompanied by the area’s best historic photography. Sidebars sprinkled throughout present lighthouses, fishing and shellfishing, transportation, storms, and more—from the legendary Savin Rock Amusement Park to stylish Jackie Kennedy christening the USS Lafayette in Groton.
