Aerial Photographs

The Connecticut State Library holds several statewide aerial photograph collections & additional smaller collections.

Hurricane Damage

The 132 oblique views of the damage that followed the September 1938 hurricane and flood were taken by the 118th Photographic Section of the U.S. Army Air Corps and the 43rd Division of the Connecticut National Guard presented the photographs to the Connecticut State Library. The photographs show flooding along the Connecticut River from Windsor to Wethersfield and in Cromwell, along Long Island Sound from East Haven to Narragansett, Rhode Island, along the Willimantic and Shetucket Rivers from Stafford to Norwich, and along the Quinebaug River in Putnam. The flights occurred on Sept. 23-24, 1938.
