Baker Store & Wood Store 1868

(click on image to enlarge)
Baker Store & Wood Store, Main Street
Southport, Connecticut
Photographer: Wilson & Davis, Bdgpt? These stores were located approximately where the driveway stone posts (south) now are on the property at 139 Main. The store at left was that of George Baker. Here the Southport _Chronicle_ was started in Nov 1867. This may be one of the 1860's photos referred to in the August 1868 _Chronicle_: In July of 1868 "Messrs Wilson & Davis Photographists of Bridgeport" came to the village to take pictures of buildings etc. "These photographs can be seen at the store of George Baker." The Baker store was razed about 1883. The store on the right is the original store of John H Wood, who was also involved in the publication of the original Southport _Chronicle_. Wood oeprated his store here from about 1858 to 1873, when he moved down to the end of Main St and Harbor Rd. The old Wood store building was used for various other business before being razed in the 1890's.

The Saturday Evening Post Cover 1947

(click on image to enlarge)

(click on image to enlarge)
This is the front cover only, from a 1947 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, over 70 years old. It measures 10.5 x 13.5 inches in size. The cover presents a charming village scene, painted in attractive color by John Falter one of the Post's most prolific cover artists. This painting shows an older couple looking through the window at an antique store with a sign calling it The Old Store On the Harbor (where Nicholas Fingelly's office on the corner of Main Street and Harbor Road is today) and also to the right is the Pequot Yacht Club. Meanwhile, as they are fascinated by the old antique objects displayed there, the store's owners are out front, peering into a brand new car which has caught their curiosity. The first inside page of the Post issue, has a twenty lines of text commenting on the painting. It identifies the location of the scene, while telling the story the artist is conveying: “Residents of Connecticut will recognize the setting of John Falter's cover. The store is patterned after one the artist has patronized in Southport, Connecticut. “It occurred to Falter that rarity is a relative thing, and that dealers in the old and unusual might be interested this summer in the new and unusual—a new car. If you could hear the antique dealers in this painting, you would hear them making the same sighs of awe and delight over the gleaming new automobile in which their customers arrived as the antique hunters are making over the pre-automobile chair.“ ‘How I'd like to have that,’ is what all concerned are saying about different subjects.”
