The Canal Line - Southern End in Connecticut - Page Seven

Don Welter, now retired in Florida, sent this photograph showing the New Haven mainline in downtown New Haven, 1947. Don's dad owned the business shown in the photo....Ralph J. Welter, Wholesale and Retail, at right. The Canal Line began here along the mainline and headed north through the "cut" in downtown New Haven, beyond Yale University, and continued along Canal Street, through the Winchester Repeating Arms Company along Winchester Avenue, up through Newhallville (where I grew up) along Dixwell Avenue and proceeded north into Hamden.
