Town:

Franklin

Vermont

1874?
Description:
This photo captures a large group of men and horse-drawn wagons in front of an earth dam. It appears they are helping to build the dam. There appears to be some erosion on the dam to the right. The foreground looks to be sandy soil with some patches of grass. A man in the center looks to be holding a plow while to the left a man carries two buckets on a yoke. In the background you can see a cleared field with some deciduous trees and a few stone walls. A horse-drawn wagon sits on top of the dam to the right. Please see the other photos of Fairfax Reservoir in this archive.
