256-270 Broad Street, Bridgeport (1879)

October 13th, 2011 Posted in Bridgeport, Houses, Queen Anne

A block of brick row houses at 256270 Broad Street in Bridgeport, which date to around 1879, have been attributed to the architectural firm of Palliser & Palliser and the builder W. Bishop. The houses combine elements of the Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne and Romanesque styles in their eclectic facades. George and Charles Palliser built a number of such brick row houses in different parts of Bridgeport in the early 1880s, but this style of urban housing did not catch on in the city. One of this row of houses has a sign out front indicating that it was the home of Capt. William C. Hyer, who commanded a brigantine in fighting in 1864 at Fort Moultrie, Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina.

    I am looking for a picture of House and Wheeler Hat Flanging Co. 1879 in Bridgeport, CT. My grandmother worked there and cannot find any pictures of her.
