Durham: 1900-1950 presents a unique view into the history of Durham through vintage postcards. A small town of approximately 7,000 people, Durham is located in central Connecticut between New Haven and Hartford. A quintessential New England town, Durham was settled in 1699 and has a vast and exceptional history. During the postcard era, images of historic homes, celebrations, businesses, and other areas of interest in town were sent all across the state and country and brought a little piece of Durham to the recipient. These snapshots of town history illustrate the many changes and transitions that have made Durham what it is today.
