About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Piano dealer Leiter

On the left side the fourth building (still existing) is a advertising sign of "Leiter Bros. Pianos".
Leiter Bros. was a wholesale and retail dealer in pianos, organs and musical goods, also Estey organs, in 53 K, Salina Street, Syracuse, N. Y.
Leiter was also a "Steinway & Sons dealer" in the United States. Possibly from german descent: Leiter= german for Ladder.

First Presbyterian Church

That appears to be the First Presbyterian Church, demolished in 1905.

Gothic church has gone to its reward.

Which is a shame, what a piece of architecture it was!

Still, plenty of familiar facades representing a more genteel era:
