Burlington VT

The Wells-Richardson building is refurbished and looking pretty spiffy. Looking directly at it in Street View gives one the standard, ordinary view of the facade.

Now there's a typical view!  Many would take that home and say that's good enough. It is. But, if you rotated Google Street View just a bit, you would find a remarkable, suitable-for-framing view of the same building from the other side of the street. It also contains what has become a favorite feature of my derivative works, a streetlight.

Here's what I found. Click the image for a full-size view. Leaf peepers will appreciate the time of year. This just has to be Vermont! The original appears on page 59 of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection.
