1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Bolton 16

Title:
1927 Flood Movie Screenshot: Bolton 16
Town:
Waterbury
County:
Washington
State:
Vermont
Date:
1927-11
Description:
This image is a screenshot from a movie made using actual footage from the 1927 flood: This image is from a clip of the 1927 Flood Movie that begins with the caption "The heaviest rainfall ever known in New England fell on November third and fourth, the flood carrying away trees, logs, and houses and these served as battering rams of destruction." This image is of a road in Bolton that is obstructed by a house or barn that has been carried into the road. There are three houses in the road in this picture. A broken white wooden fence is in the right foreground. A telephone pole remains standing behind the white house in the road. The road continues up a hill and to the right. It also appears that there is a house further up the road that wasn't damaged in the flood so this could be near the high-water mark. Note also that the road is very muddy. Skip Flanders writes on 2011-02-18: This photo is in the town of Waterbury showing RT 2 going north opposite Butler's Pond. The buildings on the left are the former Riliey's Market from a 1/4 mile south.
