When Frederick Sherman, longtime resident of Monroe, Connecticut, died in 1941, he left behind thousands of glass negatives. Most of the slides were sold or given away. Only a few hundred were given to the Monroe Historical Society.
A friend of mine recently helped to digitize and convert the photos into a short slide show. Take a look at what the early 20th century looked like in Monroe, Connecticut, on YouTube. Does anything look familiar?
A big thank you to the Monroe Historical Society and all its volunteers for preserving our past!
