175 Pine Street    Manchester, CT 06040    (860) 647-9983

This photo shows midtown Manchester – a shopping area on Main Street near the corner of Middle Turnpike. Ken Burkamp, a professional photographer for more than 50 years, took this photo on February 22, 1958, and has donated it to the Manchester Historical Society. Thank you, Ken.

The “Pinehurst” section of town comprised Oxford, Cambridge, and Essex Streets, housing developed by E.J. Holl (1874-1967), a real estate entrepreneur who was born in England and used British place-names for the streets in Pinehurst, as well as for the streets in Hollywood, another area he developed.
