If you have old photos of Wall Street and downtown Norwalk and don't know what to do with them, show them to Norwalk 2.0

"What we're trying to do is, document the history of Wall Street," says Norwalk 2.0's Jackie Lightefield.  "Show what went on during the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s."

The community and economic development organization is collecting old photos for a walking history trail exhibit that will be installed in September.

Lightfield says an interpretive photo trail will line the streets of Norwalk from City Hall to Norwalk Public Library.

Lightfield says she has about 200 photos so far, but still needs more -- more to properly capture what Wall Street felt like.

"This was the place people came to back in the day," she says.  "You had City Hall here, you had the post office here, the library here.  There was a lot of activity and reason for people to come here -- a lot of soda fountains and stores."

She says she has plenty of photos of the flood of 1955, but that isn't enough.

"We're trying to capture more of the personal stories of people's interactions," she says.

Norwalk 2.0 will collect photos Monday Aug. 26 at 68 Wall Street from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.  You can also email photos to popcity@norwalk2.org.
