Where Was This Located?

A peek into the archives of the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society.

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. The image has been provided by the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society.  For more information on the museum's collection and programs, visit www.noahwebsterhouse.org.

Last week's question was "Who Was This Man?" and we only had one guess. Richard Patrissi knew exactly who was pictured in this image. "This is a picture of a good friend of my Dad's, Al Gledhill," said Patrissi, whose family owned a rival landscaping business, in West Hartford.

The answer provided by the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society is, "In 1922, Albert Gledhill started his nursery and landscaping
business that continues to be a thriving business in town."

Looks like it could be Fern Park. Maybe that or Elizabeth Park.

Last night, Ronni Newton urged me to guess, even if I wasn't sure. I looked and I looked and I looked - Darn this looked familiar. Then it hit me, I think this may be the wading pool that is STILL in Beachland Park (off of Wolcott Road)! But there are a lot fewer trees in this photo.

And I'll take a second shot - Maybe this was Kennedy Park and the pool has now been filled in. Ok - my two chances are up. Time for someone else to guess!

It doesn't look like Beachland Park, since the terrain doesn't seem to match up. It's definitely a park though. It could be Kennedy, but I'm sticking to Fern.
