Connecticut State Parks

Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison opened to immediate success in the summer of 1920. Visitors came by the thousands
to enjoy the shoreline, but it would take until the end of the decade that the idea of an open-back swim suit would be introduced,
and still longer before they were accepted.  Hammonasset Beach 1920 ORG XMIT: HC1304241433122574
