Glass negatives reveal Monroe, Connecticut, past

Monroe, CT

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!
