Aerial Photograph of the Winooski River and Pontoon Bridge

Title:
Aerial Photograph of the Winooski River and Pontoon Bridge
Town:
Winooski
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
1927-11-12
Description:
The historic image gives a bird's eye view of the towns along the Winooski River. A caption at the bottom of the image reads, "11-12-27-12:00M. Winooski, Vt. - Pontoon Bridge." The Winooski River travels over a dam, past several mill buildings, and over another dam and rock outcrop as it runs through town. A pontoon bridge has been constructed where the old bridge, destroyed in the flood, connected Burlington to Winooski. The riparian zone is mostly bare. Debris carried by the flood has collected on outcrop in the lower, left corner of the image. Elana Katz-Mink (WQ2007) writes on 2007-01-04: The photo seems to be taken in spring or fall, as there are no leaves on the trees and there is also no ice or snow in the river or on the ground. Note the rock outcrop that has emerged from the water on the bottom left corner of the photo. Upon closer examination, one can notice a street car/trolley that is running along the near bank of the river from the second dam (down river on the left side of the photo) to the bottom left edge of the photo.
