The Connecticut State Library has recently completed the digitization of a portion of the photographs from the Herbert Randall Survey of New Haven and Environs, 1880-1920 (PG 380), which is now available in its digital collections.  This collection consists of approximately 141 black and white photographs of New Haven and surrounding areas.  Most of the photographs are street scenes from the downtown area.  Herbert Randall (1850-1926) was born in Massachusetts and lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan before opening a studio in New Haven in 1894.  He served as a contributor and later as president of the Connecticut Magazine and sought to promote public awareness of the history of Connecticut.  From time to time the Connecticut State Library hopes to add to this collection.

Are these pinned on HistoryPin? The Fair Haven-Westville Railway Power Station (http://cslib.cdmhost.com/cdm/ref/collection/p15019coll7/id/33) looks like just down the street from my stepfather’s business.
