Awakening feelings of nostalgia and community deep within each of us, the images contained in Rochester deliver us to a time when Hanson's Street was but a footpath through Domincus Hanson's garden, and Central Square was filled with bustling businesses and the whistle of the railroad. This new photographic history takes us on a journey from the era following the Civil War when the town became a city and Dodge's Hotel was a prominent feature downtown, to the days of drugstore soda fountains and shiny new filling stations. Over 200 views of Rochester, Gonic, and East Rochester fill the pages of this volume, each image helping us to satisfy our curiosity about the past and enabling us to make connections with the fast-moving times of the present.

About the author
Rochester native Florence Horne Smith has worked many long hours with other volunteers in the extensive archives of the Rochester Historical Society to compile this wonderful collection. It is the author's fondest wish that this new book will awaken memories of a different way of living for the older generation, and introduce the young to how life used to be.
