On the cover:
Park River Freshet, May 5, 1893. Webster Seventh defines freshet as “a great rise or overflowing of a stream caused by heavy rains or melted snow.” This happened with some regularity during the 19th and 20th century. Advertising signs such as these for an Asylum Street clothier were commonly painted on the sides of brick buildings. The faded ghosts of some of these signs can still be seen around the city. From Hartford Collection at The Hartford Public
Library. See story on page 10.
