I got an email from Kirsten Walker at Brooksvale Park in Hamden this afternoon.
I’ve been scanning and cataloging and captioning old slides that the late and former park ranger Jim Grandy took. I came across these and thought you’d appreciate them.
Happy New Year!
Jim Grandy was a great guy. He lived in the caretaker’s house in the park and supervised the place as if it was his own. His license plate was MICROS which had absolutely nothing to do with computers… but which I still thought was very cool.
It looks like these were shot while we taped a Christmas promo for Channel 8. The date is probably 1990 or 1991.
I’m not sure Stef would hold a rabbit today? Probably. No guarantees.
I think the photographer was Curtiss Anderson and Connie Fitch was producing.
The video? It’s almost definitely gone.
I love it when people send me stuff like this.

Priceless excellent memories . . .
Those are wonderful pictures!
Brooksvale is a great park. They host a fun x-country race yearly with a cool dragon t-shirt motif! Thumbs up for the municipal mini-zoo, not many of those left.
