The blast of a fire whistle echoed through downtown Mystic, setting in motion an event the village had long awaited.
On the Groton side, a delegation of officials set out from the Mystic Hook and Ladder Co., while in Stonington, another contingent left the B.F. Hoxie Engine Co. The two groups, sporting silk hats and led by brass bands, were soon on Main Street, facing each other on opposite approaches to the Mystic River Bridge.
