I’m not sure who the photographer is, who took this absolutely wonderful winter scene in Woodstock, but I do know a little of the story behind it. I have always loved this photo. You could purchase it at the bookstore in Stowe, VT years ago. It came in either an oval or rectangular frame. I purchased the rectangular version in 1998, and it’s one of my favorite Vermont images. I had also seen it at a store in Woodstock but these days, it seems to have disappeared entirely.
The story behind the photo according to the store owner in Woodstock was that a photographer had been out shooting that day and just happen to stop and take this shot as his last one that day. It was photographed shortly before parking meters were installed on the posts and the house on the left has long since been painted yellow. Definitely one of my favorite images of Vermont!
