Union League Cafe



The Union League Cafe is a very fine restaurant in downtown New Haven, across the street from the Yale campus.

A sign on the wall proudly reports that the building is on the site of the home of Roger Sherman, who had the privilege of signing the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.

I am traveling with questionable access to the internet.  But, I have posts scheduled while I am away. Please enjoy your visits.

Roger Sherman certainly kept himself busy. Historical sites are wonderful and so good that they are preserved and recognized.

You don't normally hear people identified as a signer of the Articles of Confederation.

Great photo, I love the sense of eavesdropping on the diners' conversation. The way the lady is running her hand through her hair really makes this one.
