Ok, maybe you’ve seen it this way but do most people actually see a town the way a photographer does?
Across the Connecticut River from Hanover, New Hampshire and Dartmouth College is the small town of Norwich, Vermont which is one of the toniest, highest income towns in all of Vermont.
It boasts a pretty village with town green, meeting hall, elementary school k-6 (and then the kids go over to Hanover for 7-12), the Norwich Inn, the restaurant Carpenter and Main, a few business offices, a few churches, historic homes and the famous Dan and Whit’s country store with two gas pumps. If Dan and Whit’s don’t have it, you don’t need it.
This graffiti found along the Amtrak train tracks that follow the Connecticut River and pass by Norwich, Vermont and the Montshire Science Museum seems totally out of place with the whole classic New England village vibe of this Upper Valley town but there it was, a surprise splash of urban street art quietly hidden among the old charm. Indeed Norwich offers a lot within a short walking distance.

The Adirondack chair (also called a Muskoka chair in Canada) is a simple chair made of wood or man made materials, generally used outdoors. Originally made with 11 flat wooden boards, it features a straight back and seat and wide armrests. The advent of various man made materials have allowed for this style of chair to be made from polymers and other hard impact plastics.
Norwich is a town in Windsor County, Vermont, in the United States. The population was 3,414 at the 2010 census. Home to some of the state of Vermont‘s wealthiest residents, the municipality is a commuter town for nearby Hanover, New Hampshire across the Connecticut River.
