William Darius Bishop was a prominent figure in the history of Bridgeport. He was a Fairfax Country Congressman, and served as president of both the Naugatuck and the York and New Haven Railroads. Bishop was also keenly interested in real estate development. His South End properties where in an area of Bridgeport where land prices were still relatively inexpensive and were ideal for low income housing being close to both factories and Seaside Park. The design of the houses are almost certainly the work of the Palliser Brothers, a Bridgeport architectural firm that elevated the style of workingmen’s architecture to a higher level in the late Victorian era. The architectural firm of Palliser and http://www.emilysnews.space/ Palliser had one of widest ranging impacts nationwide of any firm in the city’s history as evidenced by their national clientele and their numerous pattern books that were used across the United States. They had achieved considerable success with similar projects in the mid-1870s working with the great promoter P.T. The earliest inhabitants of the Bishop Cottage Development were Irish, German and rural New England workers who composed much of Bridgeport’s work force at the time.



The real estate development’s location adjacent to Seaside Park was important to families who couldn’t afford a horse and carriage to get out of town but could still enjoy easy access to open spaces on the Long Island Sound. The 2-1/2-block residential district in the South End of Bridgeport is located 4 blocks south of the Connecticut Turnpike and Downtown and a half-block north of the entrance to Seaside Park. It is a neighborhood of 35 small wood cottages built in a 1-1/2 story Carpenter’s Gothic style architecture with L-shaped foundations and front and side-gabled roofs. The 1880 cottages are found on both sides of Atlantic Street. The cottage at the southwest corner of Atlantic and Main Streets appears to have been the development’s "flagship" house and has a square tower with a pyramided roof rising from the recesses between its front and side projections. The corner houses at both Broad and Main Streets have octagonal front bays, in contrast to the flat single-window fronts of the houses in between, and squared dining room bays on the sides facing the street. The cottages have clapboarded walls with decorative board-and-batten pediments in the gables, extending slightly more than half-way down the length of the gable windows. Most of the houses have a side entry porch with a roof that slopes to the front which is supported by a single square post ornamented by rounded brackets. Today the neighborhood is a mixed residential and university neighborhood by the sea. The William D. Bishop Cottage Development Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 making it one of Bridgeport, Connecticut’s most important neighborhoods of historic homes.

Governor Woodrow Wilson in his successful 1912 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, FDR was appointed assistant secretary of the U.S. Navy, a post that Teddy Roosevelt once held. In 1920, FDR won the Democratic nomination for vice president on a ticket with James Cox. The Democrats to Republicans Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge, and FDR returned to his law practice and some business ventures. In 1921, FDR was stricken with polio and became nearly totally paralyzed. His wife, Eleanor, kept the Roosevelt name alive in Democratic circles. In 1924, partly recovered (although he could never again walk unaided), FDR returned to politics, nominating NY Governor Alfred E. Smith for the presidency with a rousing speech at the Democratic National Convention. In 1928, he again nominated Smith, and the outgoing New York governor urged Roosevelt to run for Governor. Roosevelt campaigned across the state by automobile and was elected even as the state voted in the presidential election against their favorite son and for Republican Herbert Hoover. As governor, Roosevelt worked for tax relief for farmers and in 1930 won a resounding electoral victory just as the economic recession brought on by the October 1929 stock market crash brought on the Great Depression. Governor Roosevelt mobilized the state government to play an active role in providing relief and spurring economic recovery. FDR's Treasury Secretary, Will Woodin, was a Republican industrialist who had once run for Congress on a hard-money program. He was a fan of Teddy Roosevelt and helped FDR with his Warm Springs Foundation and with fundraising for his runs for Governor and President. Woodin was a key player during the financial reforms of the first 100 days of FDR's presidency. Aided by a Democratic Congress, Roosevelt took prompt, decisive action, and most of his New Deal proposals were approved during these 100 days.
