Groton - Historical Bits and Pieces is a compilation of many of the historical articles about Groton, Connecticut written by the author and published in the Groton Times newspaper over the past five years. Various subject matters, containing little known or interesting historical facts about Groton's people, places and things, are discussed in the articles. Many are accompanied by rarely viewed photographs which are part of the author's personal collection. Unusual and interesting subjects relating to Groton, including a three part series on police corruption during the years of prohibition, the presidential desk, old businesses, hometown heroes, and many other unique stories appear in this book. Most of the articles cover the time frame between the late 1800's and the mid-1960's. Although many may not believe that the subjects are historical in nature, the author considers them to be "modern history" and in his words "one hundred years from now they will be valued as relevant history". This book will play an important role, both now and in the future, in the documentation of the history of Groton, Connecticut.

About the Author:

Groton, compiled by three members of the Groton Tercentennial Committee, takes the reader on a photographic tour of the town's history. Two hundred vintage photographs from local archives and private collections tell the story of Groton from the mid-nineteenth century to 1960.

Review:

Title: Then And Now: Transformations Of Historic Groton

Author: Juli Mancini

Publisher: Groton Patch

Date: 7/31/2011
The book "Images of America, Groton" by Carol Kimball, Jim Streeter and Marilyn Comrie, is filled with historic images of Mystic and Groton, many of which are currently in the collection of Groton Mayor and Town Historian Jim Streeter.
Historic buildings, churches and homes are steeped in history, with many stories still to be to be told. But there is also information in the photographs themselves. Seeing the changes by comparing old photos to new serves as a reminder that progress continues, but history is always an integral part of our daily lives in Groton.
