Town of Thompson 1925 Annual
Report. For those unfamiliar with township annual reports,
these documents were produced (and still are, particularly in the
more rural Connecticut townships) to document the year's activity,
ranging from elected officials, people who worked for the town
either as regular employees or per diem, expenditures (usually down
to the penny) for everything that a town might buy in the course of
a year, various tax lists and warrants, the town's financial report,
and endless lists of people who interacted with or incurred expenses
on behalf of the town government
over the year. This one is quite remarkable because it appears
to have also served as the high school yearbook -- something we've
not seen elsewhere. It's 132 pages long, and we suppose that
anyone interested in the history of the town, or who had ancestors
who interacted with the town government, would find it of interest.
