The Business District

Union and New Haven Trust / yale visual resource collection

Staking the corner with its attenuated, golden cupola,
the union and new haven trust, 1929, cross & cross (new york)
staking the corner of elm and church,
the northeast corner of the Green.

Southern New England Telephone Company

and the SNET headquarters, 1939, Foote and Orr
a block north on Church at Wall.
together they are the urbane core of the office district
trough the end of world war two.
