In 1905, Middlebury was a vibrant town with a new main street, rebuilt after a series of devastating fires. Many of the earliest homes and public buildings were still significant features in the center of town. During the next thirty-five years, major changes took place in Middlebury, at Middlebury College, and in nearby villages that shaped the modern Addison County landscape. A series of historical postcards documented these important events. Around Middlebury, with nearly 200 postcard images from the period 1905 to 1940, describes the development of the area. Images from Brandon, Bristol, Vergennes, Lake Dunmore, and Bread Loaf are included in this engaging publication.
