Bridgeport: 1900-1960 presents a fascinating look into the history of Bridgeport through vintage postcards from the city’s formative years.

Factories and homes were built, retail stores moved in, and recreational options increased to serve the needs of the thousands of people who came to Bridgeport seeking employment.
