Abrahams 2008

Title:
Abrahams Comparison 4
Town:
Burlington
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
2008-05-07
Description:
The Abraham's building located on the corner of College St and Church St has gone through several changes as shown by the series of reshots of this building over the past 70 years. Today the building is host to Leunig's restaurant and although it is blocked by the tree's foliage, they have replaced the Abraham's sign at the top of the building with their own. Church St itself has changed significantly as it is now an open air market place and as such is closed to everything but pedestrian traffic. This change has allowed the restaurant to add patio seating that would have been too large before the street was closed to traffic. These awnings are made of glass and steel closest to the building (presumably for falling snow and ice) and are vinyl father out. Trees have been planted in the sidewalk along both College St and Church St. The building's facade has been updated slightly but it still retains its original look. A large light post supporting a network of overhead cables dominates the street corner and several people are crossing College St with their dogs. The building in the left of the frame is an obvious addition as are the granite railing posts that support chains meant to keep cars off the pedestrian street. While the deciduous trees are still largely leafless the season is late spring.

Description:
This photo shows a modern day view from the corner of Church and College Streets. The "Albertsons" sign has been replaced with "Leunigs," the name of the restaurant below. The trees in the foreground are bare of trees leading one to believe this picture was taken in Spring or Fall. As it were, this picture is from the spring. It was taken in the morning, the reason why there are few people about. Devin Colman writes on 2008-07-15: The underlying building dates to 1847 and was Federal in style. The existing porcelain enameled steel exterior cladding was designed by local architect Louis Newton and installed in three phases in 1933, 1946 and 1956. The original "Abrahams" lettering remains intact under the existing "Leunig's" lettering, which is printed on adheshive vinyl panels that can be removed in the future.
