Charl at the Colony
We're sitting in the New Haven Historical Society, the building and the organization for the white people. The site for the 'rest of us', including the Irish, Italians, Jews, Ukrainians and the African Americans is at a more modest Ethnic Heritage Center near the campus of Southern Connecticut State University. When I asked Dennis (who came on another trip) his favorite place, he chose the Ethnic Heritage Center.
Charl looks through a pre-typewriter book of records, likely as part of their Mishkan Israel collection or maybe the Board of Education minutes. So hard to read handwriting.. We hit all of the high points. Though, it was about this time when he and my cousin said "Are you done yet? Haven't we looked at every single thing in town at least twice?"
