Pics Of The Day #1103

On a normal Friday morning, Westport’s business district would have been bustling.

Today was not a normal Friday morning. Neither was any day this week, or last. And it won’t be normal next week either.

Alert — and saddened — Molly Alger took a lonely tour through town this morning. Here’s what she saw.

But then — a few hours later — skies cleared. The sun came out. And all over town, people smiled.

Friday Flashback #21

Tomorrow afternoon and evening, hundreds of families will flock downtown for First Night.

The scene — in the Taylor parking lot and along the Riverwalk, on the banks of the Saugatuck and looking toward National Hall — is a bit different now than in the late 1950s or early ’60s.

That’s when Peter Barlow snapped this photo. He was testing lenses for a local camera shop.

And we think traffic is bad these days!
