    The old two-stacker "Vermont" going North on an afternoon in 1893. This beautiful shot was made by Harvey Ingham, an artist and an excellent photographer of Vergennes. It is taken looking West off Diamond Island, the "Vermont" skirting the base of Split Rock Mountain heading for Essex, her next stop. Leaving Westport about 3pm, she would reach this spot about 3:30.
