About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

The Berrys - Osteopaths

7th floor, next to Equitable Insurance... According to my source (Mr G. Oogle) Drs Clinton D Berry and Gertrude Seeley Berry attended the American School of Osteopathy together in Kirksville, Mo. Gertrude graduated in June of '04.

Love looking for people watching.

Can you find both the man and the woman watching the camera from the building?

I used to work just across the street

My office in the third floor of the hotel (used to be the holiday inn) faced the 3-4th floors of that building back toward the rear of the Granite Building.

It's still there today.

Rochester, my home town, has lost dozens and dozens of beautiful buildings over the years. Fortunately, this Beaux Arts style skyscraper is not among them. It still stands at the corner of East Main and St. Paul streets.
