Lost and Found: the Photos of Henry Durgin, Rochester’s Most Talented Amateur Photographer, 1880s-1890s

Lost and Found: the Photos of Henry Durgin, Rochester’s Most Talented Amateur Photographer, 1880s-1890s In-Person / Online

Join us to learn more about Henry Durgin’s life and explore these never-before-seen images of late 19th-century Rochester. Henry Durgin’s journey from a Civil War veteran to Rochester’s most talented amateur photographer epitomizes the spirit of industrial innovation and artistic discovery in late 19th-century Western New York. With a keen eye and a dedication to capturing the essence of the region and its cultural landscape, Durgin produced a collection of over 150 photographs, providing a unique glimpse of Rochester’s past. Lost for decades, Durgin’s photographic collection was rediscovered in the 1990s and is now a treasured part of the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, NY.

Cynthia Howk is a native of Rochester and was on the staff of The Landmark Society of Western New York, as Architectural Research Coordinator for 45 years. She has lectured extensively on local and regional history, architecture, and historic preservation.
