HEAT WAVE 1906 - A major heat wave is affecting the area - it began over the weekend. Factory workers walk off their jobs again throughout the area, as temperatures climb to well above 100 degrees on the factory floors. The extremely hot weather causes ice in iceboxes to melt faster, resulting in much milk and other perishables ruined. A Derby Trucking Company horse drops dead of heat exhaustion on Clinton Avenue and Division Street in Ansonia.

HEAT WAVE 1906 - It is 93 today, with high humidity. For a second straight day area workers walk off their jobs due to unbearable heat in the factories. No one tries to stop them. Mail carriers in particular are suffering due to their heavy loads. Many flock to public, shaded parks such as Derby Green, or take to the river on boats. Some are riding automobiles, many more are riding open car trolleys, to generate cooling breezes. Tempers and arrests are up - there is virtually nowhere to beat the heat in 1906. The temperature drops dramatically when rain arrives in the afternoon - over an inch falls.

November 6 - Election Day
Note Oxford, Seymour, and Huntington/Shelton did not hold municipal elections, as Connecticut towns held their elections on a different day than cities. They did, of course, participate in the State races.
