With 17 miles of beaches on Long Island Sound and a picturesque town center, Milford has always been the natural place to escape the heat of large cities and enjoy cool summer breezes, historic sites, boating, bathing, fishing, and adventure. Within Milford, postcards reveal various attractions, including Charles Island (where Captain Kidd reportedly hid his treasure) and the Oak Grove dance casino at Myrtle Beach. Real-photo postcards capture historic events, such as the 1915 town hall fire and the celebration of the 275th anniversary of Milford's 1639 birth. This volume lets readers step back in time and see Milford during a golden age.
