Cities are evolving entities, and as pushcarts became vans and horse-drawn streetcars became mechanized, so the streetscape and its buildings and landmarks and accesses changed. In the process there were victories and losses, progress and great leadership that already is shaping the Hartford of tomorrow.
Lost Hartford is a magical look at Hartford and its evolution from the eighteenth century to today.It contains early landmarks, such as the Old State House, which still survives. It offers some never-before-published views of Main, Trumbull, and Pratt Streets, to name a few. It shares recent triumphs, such as the joining to the Connecticut River by Riverfront Recapture and the creation of the learning corridor by Trinity College.
