My World Tuesday: Downtown Waterbury, Connecticut

Waterbury

Waterbury

Sunday Morning, Waterbury

Here are a few views of downtown Waterbury from a few Sundays ago. It really is a beautiful old industrial city whose wealthy benefactors made some beautiful things possible. On a Sunday when the streets are quiet, it's easy to see beyond the ugly street signs and traffic lights to a really splendid little post-industrial hole called home.

  6. How I love the way you see things. The light you caught in the sky over the city, picked up by the streaming flag, has a poem in it somewhere.

    Meanwhile I'm going to steal your 'Splendid Little Hole Called Home' line and use it for a title (may I?).

    I think that every town or city has its own charm and character. I particularly that clock which without a doubt added character to your downtown. Great shots!

    ReplyDelete
  67. That is one amazing clock!
    You talk about the town so well, that I feel I have an experience of it. I am from S.Calif. Not L.A., still I have plenty of loved ones there. I am not fond of that town. But on Christmas half or more of the town seems to be somewhere else and the weather is almost always glorious. I have the same feeling then, as though you can feel an old spirit of the town, one full of history and beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I dare say, with so many ahead of me, I may be lost among the fray in my late comment of these amazing photos .. Still, this town looks so quiet and old school, if you know what I mean ... like the stuff in my dreams.

  75. M.A. Green was a large jewelry store in Waterbury for over 50 years. They moved that clock from its original location on Grand St. when they moved to Bank St. in 1936.
