I've lived in Connecticut my whole life, all 21 years of it. This film makes me realize how different my state is today. I wish we had as much of a manufacturing industry now as we did then still.

I was 21 and working at Bradley when this film was made. I was the Airport electrician for almost 20 years... I ended up at the Navy Subase in Groton. I was the base Electrician working for the Federal Government. I went to Lime Rock race way all the time. It was where I met Paul Newman..Now I live next to Rocky Neck State Park. It hasn't changed that much and I love there in the Winter. Its so peaceful and quiet. What wonderful memories.. It seems like things were slower and peaceful then...I had and still have a great life.. Thank you for this film..

And believe it or not, an ex-mayor of Bridgeport jailed for corruption and embezzlement may actually be our next governor. Yes folks, we in CT are as dumb as a box of rocks.

Really accurate astronaut's eye view from space - America is floating alone amongst the stars.

Most of the companies spoke about here are long gone today. No talk at all about the firearms manufacturing back in the day, Winchester, Remington, Colt, Ruger, Marlin, Mossberg. A lot has changed, mostly negative changes.

All of these industries are probably all gone overseas now

Ah nostalgia! I was born in Hartford in "57" and grew up and remember the connecticut of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Life lesson learned; appreciate what you have because you can't have from your past. That goes for everything from places to jobs to people in your life. Everything goes away eventually.

I love how excited this film is about urban renewal projects and highways! Seeing the damage they've done is quite the contrast.

Born in Hartford in 1996 and lived here my life.
Never thought much of Connecticut. Looks like it was pretty cool in the 1960's though.

Wow what a difference compared to now! I was born in '78, it's nice to see what the Hartford area looked like before. It's just changed now and not for the better either :(
