Last week's question, "Who Is this Man?" was a tough one, especially in comparison to the previous week's photo of the building that now houses Park Lane Pizza. No one even took a chance at guessing.

According to the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society, the man in the photograph is Henry F. Wolcott, who is believed to be the last man to work a farm in West Hartford. He died in 1995 at the age of 94. The Wolcott family gave their property to the town where Wolcott Park is today.
