Is it just me or do these pictures look a lot like the ones I took in Fort Worth Texas? Is this the first time in history someone said something in Hartford has reminded them of Fort Worth? They actually have a lot in common as Fort Worth was a big economic hub back in the days of cattle drives, and Hartford remains an economic hub for the finance industry. Ok, really I can’t compare these two cities.. but I think this building on Park Street in Hartford is very photogenic and I snapped these on our way to the first Connecticut Museum Quest Dinner Club meeting which was A YEAR AGO. I need to get better about posting pictures in a timely fashion.
Anyway, does anyone know the history of this building? I could not find much.
Last spring I wrote a whole series on walking shoes fueled by my desire to find a shoe that is comfortable enough to walk in, but also had a bit of a heel. Reader, I bought those German granny sandals in navy, and I have been wearing them pretty much daily since the weather warmed up. Thus far, no one has commented on my nearly-orthopedic footwear. Not even an “Oh, those look comfortable.”
However, when the time came to do a day trip–something I haven’t done in along time due to various reasons–I pulled out my all-stars. When it comes down to it, when you need to do a lot of walking, nothing is going to beat a sneaker. I will continue on my quest to find the perfect walking shoe, but for now, these win.
