Welcome

I just found this photo,

I just found this photo, it pictures the street I grew up, North Cliff Street, on in Ansonia Connecticut. Below us was Farrel's Foundry, a massive complex even when I was a kid in the 1960s. It ran 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the gigantic iron and ore burners shown through the large factory windows and lit up the lower half of the city. This photo shows the great mansion owned by the Farrel's and others that lines the street with wide brownstone stairs that led down to the factory. Most of those homes were gone when I was a kid and I recall several of them, beautiful massive victorians, being torn down. The house on I grew up in is at the far left.
