Located at the confluence of the Yantic, Shetucket, and Thames Rivers, Norwich is known as the "Rose of New England." As a major seaport, it grew into a powerful manufacturing city due to its location on power-producing rivers. Yankee industrialists produced fine cotton, leather, brass, thermoses, and firearms. Self-sustaining villages developed around factories such as the Ponemah Mill, the Yantic Woolen Mill, and the Falls Mill. Vintage postcards from the 19th and 20th centuries depict the many sides of Norwich through images of its ways of life, places of worship, and social organizations.
