_Victorian Hartford_ by Tomas J. Nenortas. Softcover. 128 pages. 200 black
and white photos. Arcadia Publishing, 2005. ISBN 0-7385-3713-6. $19.99.
From the Postcard History Series, this book features an extensive
collection of postcards from 19th century Hartford. Many scenes are of
buildings and structures no longer standing and it is likely they were
familiar to Samuel Clemens.  The book contains ten pictorial sections,
including one titled "The Colt Empire and Nook Farm," plus a bibliography
and index.
