Church Street, Burlington Vermont – 1880 & 1930

I tend to grab photos from eBay auctions that relate in some way to my family.  The Bacons (my great-grandmother was Delia Bacon) lived and worked on or near Church Street in Burlington, and apparently at some point I grabbed a couple photos of that street.  I happened to discover them this morning and I liked the contrast between the two photos very much.  If you look carefully you can see that several of the buildings are the different, but most are the same.  It’s fun to play “what’s the same, and what has changed?”.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
