About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

After the Baseball Game

After the Baseball Game

After a baseball game the Raybestos Company employee team is shown relaxing at the Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, Connecticut. My father, James Edward McKenna, fourth from the left in the back row, is leaning against a tree. Picture was taken about 1917. From the several smiles on their faces, I imagine that they won the game that day. - Robert Edward McKenna View full size.

Brooklawn Country Club

Hello. I was a member at this country club for some years in the 1990s. The immediate area, while still nice and part of pretty suburban Fairfield County, has fallen away due to nearby Bridgeport, Conn., which is a tough and poor city on the coast of Long Island Sound. Brooklawn CC is right on the border of Bridgeport but is itself still lovely.

Fairfield, Connecticut.

Fairfield CT was/is a very upscale area in Southern CT...near Westport, Southport, and Greenwich. When you drive east on Rt 1 (from Rhode Island) you can tell immediately as you pass into Fairfield County: everything suddenly becomes clean, neat, orderly, and easy on the eye.

Hi Bob,

What a fine looking man your dad was! Thanks for sharing your picture of him with us.
