Arch Bridge in Pittsford

Title:
Arch Bridge in Pittsford
Town:
Pittsford
County:
Rutland
State:
Vermont
Date:
1907 - 1915
Description:
The handwritten caption on this historical image reads, "Arch Bridge, Pittsford, VT." It is a large stone arch bridge spanning a small stream approximately two meters wide. To the right side of the stream, it appears as though the bridge was built into the hill slope just after the arch. There is healthy riparian vegetation and evidence of hill slope failure and soil creep. There are also large boulders and cobbles visible on this side of the stream, though no clearly defined point bar. In the foreground to the left of the stream is a flat low-lying area that is possibly part of a small floodplain. There are many boulders and cobbles on this side of the stream as well, and there is evidence of hill slope failure in the background as well. Next to the bridge a piece of wood extends down to the stream, possibly as a handrail for those who want to get close to the water. The area in the background along the stream appears wooded. The lack of leaves on the trees suggests the season is spring or fall.
