Only Yesterday

Title

Only Yesterday

Subject



Description

These glimpses into the past were periodically published in the New London Day Newspaper, as a reminder of this city’s rich historical background and an ever-present Union Station throughout. While little has changed in its outward appearance over time, the flagpole visible in front of the station and the footbridge behind it no longer exist. The photograph showing presidential candidate Wendell Willkie speaking in front of Union Station, and the photograph of troops preparing to board a train on the platform, connect New London’s history to the history of the nation.
