Today, the New York Times published a photo quiz.
They posted one archival image from each state. Readers were given a clue, and invited to guess which state was represented.
Here’s Connecticut’s image:
The caption says:
The 1993 Thistle Atlantic Coast Championships, seen here, kicked off at the Cedar Point Yacht Club in Westport, Conn. Fifty Thistle sailboats — 17-foot-long, single-masted, centerboard crafts, normally crewed by three people at a time — participated. Thistles are well suited to the light-air sailing encountered on calm summer days along the Constitution State’s shore.
It’s great that Times editors chose this photo to showcase our state.
Personally, I would have chosen a throwback tollbooth.
