Rochester’s photographic history before Eastman: 1840-1880.

This walking tour focuses on Rochester’s earliest photographic history. Soon after its invention in 1839, photography made its foothold and blossomed into various studios and industries in Rochester on the Erie Canal. This is the era of the Daguerreotype, and wet plate processes such as the Tintype and ambrotype.

This walk will focus on local locations that had an early photographic historical note. Various photographic processes will be discussed. This walk is about 1.5 miles in total. All ages are welcome.
