Title:
Building through the Wetland
Town:
Sutton
County:
Caledonia
State:
Vermont
Date:
1933
Description:
Photograph shows men and machinery building a road through a swampy area. Kate Maciejowski writes on 2008-01-04: This image shows the initial stages of a road being built through a wetland area in Sutton, VT. In the immediate center of the image there are 9 people visible who are probably workers helping construct the roadway. They are all men. They all appear to be standing relatively still. Behind these people are a few construction vehicles including a bulldozer and a dump truck. The area is mainly composed of plowed up soil and there are rocky areas and places where roots from trees jut out of the ground. There looks to be some sandy fill dumped in the wet area. On either side of the road in the distance are tall coniferous trees. In the middle ground the vegetation is lower and deciduous. In the far distance, it appears that there is a car parked on the side of what might be a connecting road. There also appears to be a steam engine even further back, although it is quite blurry. It is emitting a trail of smoke or steam and seems to be traveling towards the viewer. The time of year is not easily discernible, but because some of the shrubs seem barren and there is a lot of mud present, it seems to be Spring.
