Title:
Using Horsepower in the Drury Brickyard
Town:
Essex
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
1870 - 1890
Description:
The historic image shows the process of making bricks. There are numerous people in a muddy yard with large, rectangular wooden boxes full of sediment on the left. A horse is also participating in the work in the foreground of the image. There are long, low shacks are on the right side of the image. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2004-12-21: Note: On left side of the image there is a woman wearing a beautiful dress & elaborate hat, a small child and a man apparently greeting them. N.B. the child is wearing a dress, but since the image seems to date from the middle 1800's, it could be a boy because in that period they wore dresses & did not have their hair cut until about the age of five. Hamilton Child's Gazetteer & Business Directory for Chittenden County c.1883 lists Jacob K. Drury & son as owners of the brickyard in Essex Junction. Another one of the family: Edwin I. Drury owned & operated the livery stable in Essex Junction. His advertisement in the Gazetteer is charming, with an engraving of a fine pair of horses & carriage & a mounted rider. In addition, the ad states he has careful drivers & pays particular attention to Funerals, Excursions, etc. And sells feeds & sewing machines.

Title:
Drury Brickyard Today
Town:
Essex
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
2008-03-09
Description:
This is a view of the land that once held the Drury Brick Yard in Essex Junction, Vermont. The photograph was taken from the side of Route 15. A recession of snow from the steep embankment has revealed short brown grass and debris. At the bottom of the slope a small swath of snow stands between dead grass and pavement, broken only by the protrusion of tasseled reeds and the occasional deciduous tree. A lone pine stands on the parking lotís edge. Here, minivans, sedans, and a few station wagons (cars) sit motionless in parallel lots. A brown, one story industrial building sits in the center of the landscape, surrounded by pavement on three sides and forest in the back. A street creates a pavement barrier between the industrial complex and residential buildings hidden behind deciduous trees. A few evergreen trees appear sporadically, breaking up the monotonous brown of leafless forest. The sky is overcast; the season, early spring. This image encompasses a much broader landscape than its preceding photo, so it is difficult to measure the amount of landscape that has changed between the two photographs. Obviously, the second image shows an increase in the amount of vegetation. Forestation over the past half-century has been a common theme in Essex. In addition, the Drury Brickyard in the 1800s and early 1900s has since closed, and the land it covered has been replaced with residences, family practitioners, and small business.
