Conniving bosses, predatory slumlords, greedy industrialists, and political intrigue; every city has its wicked side, but not every city has a proper critic to chronicle it. Author Steve Thornton takes readers on an exciting journey
through the seedy underbelly of Hartford’s past.
Thornton is creator of The Shoeleather History Project, which documents
and explores stories from Hartford’s grass roots.
The book will be available in the Stowe Center Museum Store.
