Last week we asked readers to identify what was happening in a photo. Patch usually has the answer in advance, but not this time, and the guess of a sale at S.K. Lavery, which was mentioned by both John Maloney and JoAnn, seemed to be the likely answer. Maloney also thought perhaps it could be a home/kitchen show at the West Hartford Armory.

The correct answer, provided by the Noah Webster House & West Hartfod Historical Society, is: "This was one of the displays that could be seen at the 1926 Connecticut State Fair that was held at Charter Oak Park."

I believe the photo is of the little league baseball field at Beachland Park along Troutbrook. Currently the field is now a soccer field.

It certainly looks like the overflow of the Troutbrook but I say it's at the intersection of Boulevard and Troutbrook. My father-in-law, Bill Farrell, was the Town Engineer for many years in West Hartford and he worked on the Troutbrook project.
