From my mother

I sent this photo to my mother, who grew up in Burlington in the 1940s-1960s. This is her reply:

If you stood in place and turned right, looking up College Street, you'd see the offices of the Burlington Free Press, where Dad worked all those years.

Church Street is now a brick-paved pedestrian mall lined with trendy cafes and shops.
