Title:
Aerial Photograph of the Winooski River and Little River after Flood
Town:
Waterbury
County:
Washington
State:
Vermont
Date:
1927-11-12
Description:
The historic image shows the confluence of the Little River and Winooski River after the flood of 1927. A caption at the bottom of the image reads, "11-12-27-10:00A. Waterbury, Vt." Pieces of a railroad bridge destroyed by the flood lie to the right of the confluence. Route 2 runs above the river. There are several farms along the road. Some sediment carried by the flood was deposited in the floodplain. The riparian zone is bare. Most of the landscape around the river is cleared, but there are partially forested hills around the river valley. Skip Flanders writes on 2011-05-21: This photo shows land in Duxbury on the other side of the Winooski in the lower portion of the picture. The railroad bridge in the middle right hand edge is Bridge #71 where 5 75 ton 75 feet long girders were knocked off the piers by the ramming of the Winooski Street Covered Bridge from Waterbury. These 5 girders were put back in place without heavy equipment because it could not be reached by rail. The competion of this bridge on Feb 4, 1928 was the last link connecting north and south railroad after the Nov. 4 1927 flood.
