Connecticut is known for farming and growing shade tobacco. Some of you may recall (ok, most won’t) the movie “Parrish” that came out in 1961. I was just a kid, but I remember seeing it. It starred Troy Donahue, Claudette Colbert and Connie Stevens. Many parts of the movie were filmed on location, in Windsor, Connecticut.
Windsor is the oldest town in Connecticut.
This photo (and others to be posted in future Wordless Wednesdays) are of the tobacco sheds in Windsor. In the summer, the sides of the sheds open up to dry the tobacco leaves.
