West Hartford


On a wall in Blue Back Square, a sign gives homage to Noah Webster's dictionary, the "blue back speller" for which the east end of West Hartford Center is named.  Webster is a West Hartford native.

It's difficult to imagine a world without dictionaries. Robert Cawdrey who compiled "Robert Cawdrey's Table Alphabeticall" in 1604 may well be an ancestor of mine as he shared the same surname as my grandfather.

Mr. Webster helped me a lot!

West Hartford is the contrast capital of Connecticut. The design of the wall is quite creative.

Thanks for your kind words on my post today.

Good image for the theme.
I found this one hard. Great idea but perhaps it might have been easier if I'd had more time and focused on it...
