SUMMER

The summer layout shows a view as you approach downtown Rochester, New York in 1950! You may recognize some of the landmarks on the backdrop, but the newer skyscrapers (ie. Xerox) are missing because they were not built yet.  The backdrop was painted by The Rochester Art Club in 1950. You can see Kodak, Sibley Tower, Superba Cravats, the Powers Building, University of Rochester  Rush- Rhees Library, the old New York Central Railroad terminal, Baltimore and Ohio Railroad terminal, Lake Ontario at Summerville and the Genesee River.

This is a slide show of the summer layout.
