Overview

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.
