Mill River Bridge June 1889
 Southport, Connecticut
Description: Photographer: Roderick Curtis? Written on back of picture: "View of Bridge in process of building at Southport, Conn. June 1889." Written in different handwriting: "Tide Mill." An examination of the terrain indicates that this is not the bridge at the Southport tide mill but rather is the bridge on the Post Road between Fairfield and Southport. The view is from the east looking west towards Southport. The Advertiser of 15 Feb 1889 speaks of an item at the town meeting in regard to the bridge and the cutting down and grading of "the hill adjacent." Advertiser of 29 March 1889 refers to work being done on the bridge. Writing on reverse of this picture is similar to that of other pictures known to have been done by Roderick Curtis.

Southport Harbor Winter 1890's

(click on image to enlarge)
Southport Harbor looking west on Harbor Road, Meeker Warehouses etc.
Southport, Connecticut
Description: Photographer: Clinton B. Hall? No note found with this glass plate negative. Plate marked on top edge, "View Harbor...2 PM...No 4." Picture seems to have been taken from Jennings dock, Harbor Road, foot of Main Street. It shows water side of Harbor Road, going west, from approximately the foot of Westway Road to the foot of Old South Street. The 3 small buildings on the right side of the picture were the Meeker onion houses, one of which was converted into the house at 825 Harbor Road in the 1950's. The tower in the background was part of the Miss Theodora Bulkley residence, which stood at the northeast corner of Old South and Harbor Road. Buildings visible on the left side of the photo were a barn and house (built by Andrew Bulkley) which stood on the site of 883 Harbor Road until 1902.

FLASHBACK: Rosie On South Pine Creek Road

(click on image to enlarge)
February 6, 2001
Rosie lived on South Pine Creek Road and for years, biked everywhere. Anyone who drove down South Pine Creek Road or Oldfield Road or the Post Road has seen her on her vintage bicycle. We miss seeing her on the road. It has been several years since she was seen on her beloved bike. When this photo was taken, Don's Cycle Shop in Fairfield said she bought the bike new from them over 50 years ago in about 1950, and had it serviced there regularly ever since. 
They even serviced her bike for free.

Rosie biked no matter the weather..
And, her brother also could be seen all over Fairfield on his bike, sometimes just walking it.

Lattice House - Come and Explore

One of a pair of Italian candle sconces from 1960.
These are in excellent condition and have a terrific patina.
Everything in Lattice House is special and unique- but every once in a while something truly amazing comes in. This is a Lucite Owl from the late 1960's. He stands 12 inches tall and only has minor scratches. He would make a witty addition to anyone's home.
Simple, Clean, Modern
This is the best cocktail shaker for Sunday.
NAMASTE
Gold Paint on Terra Cotta
Silver on Frosted Glass - Circa 1960's
We have a great selection of new and vintage barware in stock- shakers make a great gift for that hard to buy for someone- or - as a gift for yourself.
