I went to Rochester via Google Street View looking for the New York One-Price Clothing House at 10 West Main St. for page 68 of the Earl J. Arnold Advertising Card Collection - 1885
. Here's what I found nearby:
"In the best light"|
Google Street View usually does not include night images, so for those interested, the above is a postcard from the early 20th century which shows the Powers Building at night. No credits or publisher information was on the card. Click the image to enlarge.
|Bouncy, Bouncy! (January 2016) From the windows of the Powers Building the sun bounces off a Powers Building onto the glass surfaces next door, which illuminates the Powers Building, whose image then appears on the glass wall. |
|Returning to Rochester to investigate the location of G. Gould & Company's Fine Shoes (16 State St. and 3&5 Exchange Place), I came upon the Powers Building in yet a different light:|
|"Land Yachts" wait for the light across from the Powers building in 1968. This rochestersubway.com photo shows that the Monroe County Savings Bank had moved into the Powers Building from its original home, now occupied by the First National Bank. The Powers Building at this stage was suffering from haphazard small renovations, none of them in keeping with the original character of the building.|
(This neighboring building was built for the Monroe County Savings Bank in 1924)
