It’s a Sign

I wanted to congratulate my longest held friend Thomas Fatone on the publication of his new book, The Signs of Connecticut. As a native of the Nutmeg State I remember seeing plenty of these blue signs on various road sides. I also remember Tom talking about photographing all of them. Figures the city of our youth would be the most troublesome. (You’ll have to buy the book for that story.) Now that the book is out I can see why he was so excited about it. Talk about living history. Looking through the book I had many moments of, “I remember that place.” So even if you aren’t up on your Connecticut geography this is still a neat memoir of one kid from Bridgeport’s trek east, west, north and south across the state, culminating in a meeting with the Governor at the last sign to be photographed, the City of Hartford.
