Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #26

Summertime, and the livin’ is — well, for this week’s photo challenge Lynn U. Miller has gone to her wintry files. If you think you know where she shot this scene, click “Comments” below. Of course, add any back stories you wish.

Meanwhile, last week’s photo challenge was the toughest yet. It took 3 days, but thanks to a cross-continental collaboration between Wendy Cusick of Norwalk and Nancy Hunter (Vancouver, British Columbia), Lynn U. Miller’s mystery was finally solved.

The image was part of a plaque from the Lions Club, commemorating America’s bicentennial in 1976. This was the clue:

Oh My 06880 - June 21, 2015

Here’s the full image:

Lions Club plaque - Jesup Green flag pole

It was located — still is, in fact — at the base of the flagpole on Jesup Green. As I said, hidden in plain sight. Lynn and I got all of you (except Wendy and Nancy!)

  6. That is in our attic waiting for next December……….How did Lynn Miller get into our house??????

  7. Sweezy’s was Westport’s Lord & Taylor window display at Christmas ! In addition to the skating rink, they had a tiny “OO”? gage train set that ran around into and out of a tunnel to the delight of all the kids. Strategically placed on the hilltops and RR crossings were selected jewelry pieces made to fit into the landscape 🙁

    Well….I see Westport got this one quick. I would have guessed store window or display. I wouldn’t have gotten the right store. I’ve haven’t walked down Main St in years nothing interests me. I drive down to see what is happening from time to time.

    Yes this was from the Sweezy’s window display but it is now located in the Barn on the second floor at the Wheeler House.

  10. Like Wendy, I haven’t walked down Main St. in years (1988, to be exact), and much for the same reasons.
    Happily, there is still History, old and new, not to be taken for granted.

    Thankfully, people like Lynn Miller and Dan Woog, Betsy Kahn and so many more remind us. C’est la vie!

  11. Jen was a very good high school friend of mine… Her family truly loved displaying there holiday display.

  13. And that display is now housed in the Westport Historical Society’s barn! Come take a look!
