Last week, we featured a photo of Francis G. Reynolds, who had a long career with the West Hartford Police Department. In 1973 Reynolds was promoted to chief of police. He retired in 1987 from the West Hartford Police Department after a 32-year career that included 14 years as chief. In 1989, two years after retiring, he was elected to the Town Council as a Republican.
Lisa Petersen, Rick Liftig and Giovanni Seccareccia all identified the former chief, although Liftig got the bonus question - that Francis served on the Town Council. Well done.
What about this week's photo? Yep, that would be a library. (The books kind of gives it away, no?) But where was this library located? Let us know in the comment section below.
If you think you know the answer or have a special memory related to the photo, respond in the "Leave a comment" box below this article. We'll run the answer next Monday, along with a new historical photo.
