posted in: City of Rochester | 0

In 1932 the 48-foot-tall granite obelisk was dedicated to Henry Lomb (1828-1908); co-founder of Bausch & Lomb Optical Company, Civil War Captain, philanthropist and first president of Mechanics Institute, now Rochester Institute of Technology.  The first two photographs are taken from Lomb Memorial Park looking towards the intersection of Martin Street and Sheridan Street (now Upper Falls Boulevard).  Coca-Cola Bottling of Rochester is now on that site.  The third photograph is a view of Lowell Street looking towards Galusha Street.  In the background you can see the Model Lunch at 26 Lowell Street and Lowell Restaurant located at 23 Lowell Street.  Reproduced from 127 negatives.
