With the 2014 Winter Olympics about to begin, I find it is a perfect time to roll out this old photograph. My best guess is this is winter 1977 in downtown Londonderry, VT. This is where Jake Burton Carpenter started the now world famous Burton Snowboard Factory. To think that such humble beginnings has catapulted into a huge industry, and is now one of the most popular Olympic Sports. For nostalgia seekers, this building was the little brown antique boutique across from 'Mike & Tammy's' and the Garden Café. Sadly, it burnt down a few years ago. There are several Vermonters in the 2014 Olympics this year, hope you cheer for them all!
