The first English settlement in New London was established in 1646, and it was the thirteenth settlement in Connecticut. Its location at the mouth of the Thames River on the Long Island Sound made it one of the best deep-water harbors on the sound and encouraged a thriving shipping industry as well as an important location during the American Revolution. In the early nineteenth century, it became one of the busiest ports in the United States and brought considerable wealth to the region, which generated the funding needed to construct many of the notable buildings still found in the city.
In 1781 much of the city was burned during the Battle of Groton Heights by Benedict Arnold in an attempt to destroy Privateers' ships and the Continental Armies Naval fleet. The completion of the Springfield and New London Railroad in 1870 further opened access to major trading centers in Western Massachusetts. The city enjoyed significant prosperity during the early twentieth century. This bird's eye perspective was published by Hughes & Bailey, which was a prolific partnership between John Hughes and Oakley Hoopes Bailey and bears their signature style, classic aesthetic, and unique artistic flourishes.
Bird's eye perspectives were created to serve as marketing materials for towns and cities across America and featured prominent civic features, government buildings, and economic opportunities in an effort to entice residents and merchants alike. This distinctive form is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time, creating a bond with our shared history and culture.
