Title

The Upper Falls of the Genesee at Rochester NY from the East

Description

Somewhat idealized view of Rochester's High Falls has cattle grazing peacefully in the foreground of this print. The "Mercury" statue at rear center, however, dates the scene after 1881--which is when the Kimball Tobacco Factory commissioned it. By that point the High Falls area already had many more factories and mills than is pictured; the area had been an industrial center for several decades.
