The Thimble Islands Postcards DVD


The Thimble Islands in Stony Creek, Connecticut were allotted in the fifth Branford land division and some remained in the same family for many years. The Thimbles were a summer resort destination for a clam bake or to stay in one of the island’s hotels. The granite islands vary in size and topography but each has a 360 degree view of the shoreline and water. Today, the beauty, ambiance, and history of the Thimble Islands can be experienced with an island boat tour. This disk contains scans of 100 postcards from the early 1900s.
