Details:Speed: Hydroplane Racing on the Connecticut River, covers the era of speed racing on the Connecticut River during the first forty years of the Twentieth Century, before America’s entry into World War II. Technological innovation, hydroplane design and manufacture, women racers in a male-dominated sport, and all of the people involved in this sport; sponsors, designers, and racers are showcased. The exhibit includes photographs, trophies, memorabilia, vintage outboard racing motors, 1930s race newsreels, and several vintage hydroplanes. A small child-sized interactive hydroplane for children, and a selfie station ensure that you will have great memories of your visit. Hydroplane racing embodied innovation, speed, and change. The Speed exhibit encapsulates an activity reflective of America during the early 20th century: innovation, economic change, thirst for modernity, and expanding freedoms for women who could participate in male-dominated sports.
