Title:
Working at the Clay Bank in Drury Brickyard
Town:
Essex
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
1899-07-28
Description:
The historic image shows excavation of clay for brick making. This clay probably has some coarser silt in it and was likely deposited in the glacial lakes that once covered much of the Champlain lowland. There are several wagons with horses and a very small pond in the foreground, likely the result of water trapped on the impermeable fine sediment (the clay). There are a few trees in the background. The title below the photograph reads, "The Clay Bank -- July 29-99."
