Title

Upper Genesee Falls, Rochester NY

Description

Photograph from a now-defunct news service company shows the High Falls area of Genesee River. At right we see the Gorsline Building that housed three main manufacturing operations at this time: Williams, Hoyt & Co. (a maker of shoes); the Rochester Folding Box Company; and Genesee Lithographic. Previously at this location had been the Steam Gauge and Lantern Works factory. In 1888 a major fire destroyed the building and killed an estimated 34 men and boys. Note: there are two images here, a slightly cropped image of a smaller file size, and a larger file of the original image.
