Wilson H. Faude's first photographic history of Hartford was a wonderful collection of images of the city from the 1850s to the 1960s. Now, he brings us a second volume of images from our past. These photographs again lead us on a fascinating and fun journey down memory lane, back to the days when Frank's was on Asylum, Sage-Allen's lit up the holiday sky, and events such as the Mile of Dimes and people like Dan the Bare Foot Man were an integral part of the city.
