Greater Rochester: A Century of Progress presents the glory years of Rochester in more than two hundred stunning images, beautifully crafted by photographers, engravers, lithographers, and illustrators. It reveals how pioneers built a wilderness town around a river and waterfalls, and how it grew into a truly unique American city. It recognizes the great contributions of courageous individuals who advanced their issues and improved their communities, among them Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, and George Eastman, and the marvels of the day-the hotels, bridges, canals, railroads, and other accomplishments.
