The Connecticut State Library has recently completed the digitization of the William H. Thompson Photographs of Hartford, 1903-1906 (PG 430), which is now available in its Digital Collections and Flickr site. The photograph set in Flickr is arranged in chronological order. The collection consists of approximately 93 black and white photographs and 6 prints that appear to be the originals.
An interesting note about this collection is the change in some of the street names. Thompson from 1903-1906 took photographs of street scenes, river scenes, architecture, statues, and parks of central Hartford.
