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.
