This was taken at the Museum of Springfield History in Springfield, Massachusetts. The city, on the Connecticut River, was a center of manufacturing in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many things were made here from shampoo and cosmetics to Rolls Royces! But as technology advanced and labor was cheaper elsewhere the city has declined. About the only major manufacturing company left is Springfield Armory.
In spite of her economic difficulties, Springfield remains a wonderful place to live with many beautiful old homes, parks, a symphony, museums, a zoo and much more.
