A few weeks ago, alert “06880” readers were identified the 1920s-era Flambeau Tea Room.
Now how about the Westover Inn?
The front view of this postcard — courtesy of Seth Schachter — looks like it really could be in Westport.
Or anywhere else in New England.
I’ve never heard of it. Seth hasn’t either.
But — according to the back of the postcard — it was right there on the Post Road.
There’s one clue as to its vintage: the phone number. Those were the days when you needed only 5 digits to make a call.
Sometime in the 1950s, Bell introduced the “CA 7” (for CApital) prefix to Westport.
