Downtown Rochester is defined by Main Street, State Street, and the major crossroads of those streets. It is the core of one of New York State's most important cities. Rochester's Downtown recaptures the golden era when downtown bloomed as a mecca for daytime workers and shoppers and for an evening's entertainment at vibrant social centers. Rochester's Downtown celebrates the people of this great city as they progress from their early beginnings to create a dynamic business center. This excellent collection of images regenerates the excitement of riding the trolley, of watching a movie at the Palace or the Capitol, of window-shopping at the Duffy-Powers Store, and of tasting frosted malteds at Sibley's or warm doughnuts from the Mayflower Donut Shop or spoonfuls of roasted peanuts from Mr. Peanut Man. The narrative recalls Scrantom's as the place to buy books, Neisner's having the latest 78-rpm records, McCurdy's and Edward's with their special holiday displays, Eddie's Chop House for memorable dinners, and the Century Sweet Shop for after-theater sundaes.
