Title:
Landslide Blocking Road
Town:
Bennington
County:
Bennington
State:
Vermont
Date:
1935?
Description:
The historic image shows two large (3+meter) blocks of rounded gravel-rich sediment blocking a road with a few tree limbs. The sediment is well cemented, perhaps by calcium carbonate deposited by groundwater. The road appears wet so perhaps it's been raining. Two men and a car are behind the landslid blocks. This is spring or fall as the steep slopes in the distance have deciduous trees with no leaves. A large, bare landslide scar is visible on this distant slope and utlity lines and poles run along the road.
