Title:
Winooski River Reshot
Town:
Essex
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
2008-03-09
Description:
This is an image of the still frozen Winooski River in Essex Town, Vermont. There is snow along each bank, and the pressure from the riverís current has buckled the surface ice into large uneven bumps and crevasses. A lone covered-bed pickup truck rests at the traffic light, which is suspended by a metal pole. Power lines cross the center of the image, framing the view of an industrial complex in the background. Leafless deciduous trees and the occasional conifer inhabit the riverbank. A metal guardrail provides a barrier between the roadís pavement and the steep riverbank. A brown median divides the opposite flows of traffic. It is capped with a warning sign indicating its existence. The sky is clear and the season is early spring. Forestation, industrialization, and an increase in traffic are the main differences apparent in the historical and contemporary representations of this scene. In the old photograph, the far riverbank is an open field, gently transitioning into slopes in the background. Forest does appear on the opposite bank, though there is an increase in deciduous trees in the foreground. In the time period between the takings of the two photos, the factory complex for IBM was built, and a riverside highway was constructed. There is no sign of telephone or electrical wires in the old photo, though these are present in excessive amounts in the contemporary image.
