Rochester history.

Here in Rochester, many famed industries were started as many of you know. One of them being Bausch & Lomb. It’s founders both lived here.
On Memorial day in 1932 a monument was constructed and dedicated for Henry Lomb honoring his service in the American Civil War. Lomb served as a sergeant, lieutenant, and captain. The monument sets in a meridian on Upper Falls Blvd and St. Paul street in front of the original Bausch & Lomb plant.
For over 30 years the lights were turned off for unknown reasons. But recently, just last Monday (Memorial day) thanks to donations from local merchants, the lights were back on.
It’s nice to see history continually honored as it should be.

Coney Island – Off Season’

Coney Island has always attracted artists eccentrics and the locals who have it in their bones. It is more than an inner city amusement park, it is a state of mind.

It’s eye candy to an artist, visionary.

A dreamscape of joy and despair.

It was once called “The World’s Greatest Playground.”

It went down for awhile, but now. it is making a comeback.

There is currently a great exhibit about it going on at The Brooklyn Museum through March 13th, called Coney Island – Visions of an American Landscape.

It’s chock full of the history and American Eye Candy I love.
Here’s some pictures I took this past Saturday:
