A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida (Naples) and southwest Connecticut (Ridgefield) and New England and other places he goes.
It's always nice to be recognized. But PR is still not independent.
What a guy! Thanks for the link too.Is there a connection to Hartford?
Lovely memorial to Betances, I'm curious too was there a link to Hartford.
Emeterio? That is some name...
I did a bit of research before making this post, but did not uncover a connection between Betances and Hartford. My assumption is that it is like Columbus and Washington and MLK . . . notable individuals are honored even if they have no specific connection to the city. I would be happy to have someone correct me.
The link provided some fascinating information, e.g. the "whitening" of the family. To his credit, he was not happy about it and considered it hypocrisy. He was quite an accomplished individual, one whom any school would be proud to honor.
That's an interesting person to name a school after, I like it.
I wouldn't expect to find a school named for a Peurto Rican in Connecticut. But I definitely like it! Love the building too. Red brick just seems to be what a school should be made of. :)
Oh wow I'd be impressed if I went there as a child. The symbols of chains are interesting.
Thank you for having introduced me to Dr. Betances. I confess I haven't heard of him before and I should have, an independence movement is something you must know of.
One of the first ophthalmologists, very good I like him already! I'm still trying to get my head around you, Lowell and Birdman in a meet up, what a get together that would be!!
I am off to check out the link. I know little about Puerto Rican politics.
Very nice. Like Red Pat I am going to have to check this out.
Hi Jack,Very nice pictures I have missed. I have been on Boca Grande, where are you?Sheila
I wonder if the students have a short nickname for their school - the full name is quite a mouthful.I've been away and missed a lot of posts - you've been showing some interesting stuff. The American flag on my blog is, I think, to say welcome, because so many Americans visit York.
Jack, Thanks for this. Very interesting man.
