Thames River

Norwich, CT  2014

This reflection shows the Shetucket River as it meets up with the Yantic River in Norwich to form the Thames River.  The harbor here, Chelsea Landing, was first laid out in 1684 and due to having access to Long Island Sound, became an important trading center with the West Indies and places abroad.  The arrival of the railroad in 1840 began the slow decline of the harbor as a significant center of trade.  Today the harbor caters to pleasure craft.  I'm sharing this with Weekend Reflections.  Have a great first weekend of the New Year.

  4. I like how you composed your photo. You've got me imagining how it must've looked long ago when the ships came and went from there.
