    Old truck on Old Road!! How about old truck at 41 Old Road?

    I believe around 1932-ish there were only 3 houses on Old Road. There was Bauer, Horosky, my grandfather’s and Greco, although technically Sam Greco’s driveway exited on the Post Road next to his diner.

    There’s a story about Bauer. He’d go drinking in Fairfield and when he had a few too many, they’d put him in the back of his buckboard, slap his horse, and the horse would take him back to Old Road. More than once I heard this story. (Bauer Place is named after him and one could buy a new house for $3,000 on the street in the 1940s.)

    I’m curious about the “Three Buddhas” sculpture by Radwan, which I resonate with! What’s the scale/size of this piece? I can imagine this as many feet high, or just inches tall. Also, I’m curious about “Fairfield County Vintage” photo by Barlow …would love history/details/backstory, etc.. Love this gallery segment Dan!

      Hi Sharon. The house in “Fairfield County Vintage” was in downtown Stamford in the late 70s. I never knew anything about its but I liked it a lot. It was demolished soon after I took the picture. The little girl on the steps had no connection to the house – she appeared in many of my photos and is now grown up. Her name is Dorrie and she often writes for this site.
