Before Our Time


This is for my friends on “You Might be from Old Saybrook if …” I was sorting through photographs for a project and came across this old tyme postcard. Mother must have given it to me, and I think she said that the man in the photo is Mr. Maynard. I don’t know if he was the one  who lived across the street from her family at 151 Old Boston Post Road, meaning his house would have been where the Nuhns (sp?) lived when the “older” folks on YMBFOS were kids. It’s the house on the southwest corner of OBPR and Trask Road.

I love the card because it shows a time that is long gone. I doubly love it because the back of the card reads “Printed for the James Pharmacy, Old Saybrook, Conn. Copyright by Howard B. Welch, New Haven Conn. Printed in Saxony.”

Further information is welcome.
