Title:
Looking Across Dam From Bolton Falls to Camels Hump
Town:
Bolton
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
1907 - 1915
Description:
A caption at the bottom of the hand painted historic image reads, "Bolton Falls, Vt. Bridge, Camel's Hump in Distance." The image shows rock outcrop along the banks of the river. Trees grow on and around the rock outcrop in the forested riparian zone. There is a bridge across the river. There are some open fields on a hill in the middle ground of the image. A forested Camel's Hump Mountain looms in the background of the image. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-1-22: A classic view of what is known today as Camels Hump... but which has been called by many names. Samuel de Champlain when he first saw the peak called it Le Lion Couchant, which in heraldry is the couching lion. At a later date someone not familiar with heraldry decided it looked like the hump of a camel. Hence Camels Hump it remains. Rowland E. Robinson, who was an artist until he became blind, wrote of it as a resting place or a sit-down place mountain. The author Louise Andrews Kent, writing from her home in Calais where she had a splendid view of the peak, called it with great affection: Catamountain. Jerry Chase writes on 2008-01-23: There was no bridge across the Winooski at this point between two cliffs. The "bridge" is the exposed top of the Bolton hydroelectric dam. The same scene is on other postcards of the era. The error is not from the person uploading the file, but is an actual error printed on the postcard itself.
