Title:
Aerial Photograph of Covered Bridge on the Winooski River
Town:
Williston
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
1927-11-12
Description:
The historic image gives a bird's eye view of the land along the Winooski River after the 1927 flood. A caption at the bottom of the image reads, "11-12-27-11:15A _Checkerhouse bridge between Williston and Richmond, VT. The image shows a covered bridge across the Winooski River at the bottom of the photograph. The riparian zone is bare. There are steep banks along the side of the river, puddles of standing water in the flood plain, and small streams where the floodwaters cut new channels. There is also a steep eroding hillside near several farm buildings in the middle of the image. Most of the landscape is cleared. Terraces and deep stream valley are clearly shown. Richard Allen writes on 2005-9-17: Writing on black and white 1927 photo says Checkerhouse bridge, so named for the brick pattern on the nearby house which is still there.
