While digitizing photos from the 1970s in our photo archive, we came across an explosion of normally staid New Englanders suddenly opting to wear plaid. Photo from Lakeville Journal archive​

Back When We Were Mad for Plaid

We’ve recently had hundreds of our old Lake–ville Journal photo negatives digitized for us by two wonderful volunteers: Perry Gardner and Kathy Phillips. 

It’s been immensely fun to look at the old photos, and often surprising.

Up Close and Personal With the Residents of Falls Village, Conn.

Of all the things that have disappeared from country life during the pandemic — the movie theaters, the clamorous, packed restaurants on a Friday night, the summer season of garden party fundraisers — perhaps most noticeable is the absence of the people in your daily routine.

Inside the home of Bunny Williams and John Rosselli

Bunny Williams and her husband, John Rosselli, are more than just the most famous designer/antiques dealer partners in this part of Litchfield County, Conn. 

Among the many famous buildings and sites in England that Prince Edward toured in his “Crown and Country” series was Sandringham House in Norfolk, which is one of two properties owned by the Royal Family (the other royal residences are owned by the Crown). Image from www.royal.u

Prince Edward Takes Us on a Tour of English History

Perhaps you were swept away by “The Dig,” the new film released at the end of January on Netflix, starring Ralph Fiennes, Carey Mulligan, Lily James and the archaeological dig at Sutton Hoo in England.

Perhaps you’ve been transfixed by “The Crown,” and its semi-documentary recounting of several generations of the British Royal Family.

Sci-Fi and Brit Wit

If you’re a science fiction fan, you probably know about Amazon Prime’s “The Expanse” — the best SF show on television ever. But you may not have heard of “Dark,” a German show running on Netflix.
