If you’ve lived in Westport for more than a day, you know what a visually intriguing place our town is.
If you’ve lived here for a while — or lived here once, before moving away — you know it’s always looked intriguing. And a lot different yesterday than today.
“06880” is excited to announce a new feature: “Friday Flashback.”
Each week, we’ll post a new photo of a place that no longer exists. Some will be old. Others will be very old. A few will be real old.
For a while, folks have been sending me great shots. There are many more floating around on the internet, including some great Facebook pages. (Thanks, Paul Ehrisman!) It’s time to share them with the wide “06880” community.
This week’s Friday Flashback shows the Pine Knoll Inn.
For many years a boarding house — and before that, a home owned by the Kemper family (whose tannery and orchard are now the Westport Country Playhouse) — the Pine Knoll was torn down in the early 1980s.
Today it’s the Playhouse Square condos, behind the post office.
“Friday Flashback” needs your help. Please email any great photos — showing any Westport places, buildings, stores, etc. — to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
