Title:
Brownell Library
Town:
Essex
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
1910 - 1940
Description:
This black and white photograph captures the Brownell Library in Essex Junction. The modest, one-story, brick, gable-roof building is sited on a well-tended lawn at the opposite side of a packed dirt road. The road crosses the extreme foreground of the image. Wheel tracks from horse-drawn carriages or early automobiles traverse the road surface. A stone curb, grassy parkway, and concrete sidewalk line the far side of the road. The library sits slightly back from the road up a small grade. A small set of steps ascend the sloping lot, and a concrete walkway approaches the primary entrance of the building. The library was constructed in the Colonial Revival style, likely only a short time prior to the date of the photograph. A pair of doors are centered on the symmetrical façade and are surrounded by a transom light, flat pilasters, a flat entablature, and a round pediment. The door is flanked by elongated, multi-paned windows that are topped by splayed lintels and keystones. An arched window is visible on the left side of the building. The building sits on a stone foundation and is topped with a slate-covered roof. Small plantings grow along the foundation. A mature, leafy, deciduous tree shades the right side of the building. A cluster of modest dwellings or outbuildings are visible just beyond the tree foliage. Half of a barn is visible to the left of the library. A few farming implements sit alongside the barn. A dwelling and a few small outbuildings are visible beyond the barn and library. A few young deciduous trees have been newly planted along the parkway of the road, and a thick line of deciduous trees crowd along the background beyond the buildings. Utility lines cross the upper half of the image. The thick foliage suggests a summer season. This photograph was taken by a photographer for the Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Co. and contributed to the Landscape Change Program by the Penobscot Marine Museum, located in Searsport, ME. Eastern Illustrating was a postcard company located in Belfast, ME that took thousands of photographs throughout New England and upstate New York between 1909 through the 1950s.

Title:
Brownell Library 6 Lincoln Street
Town:
Essex
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
2009-04-25
Description:
This image shows the front of the Brownell Library from the middle of Lincoln Street. In the foreground there are power lines, signs and two young individuals hanging out in front of the library. The picture was taken in early spring and grass has become fully green. Compared to the original photograph it seems that the main entrance has been moved from the front of the building to the left side. A pathway and a set of steps that used to lead up to the front door has been removed and replaced by grass. A parking lot has also been build on the left side of the building.
