At the turn of the last century, nobody could point and click to explore their world. One hundred years before the Internet, even a photograph was a rare and special thing. So how can we go back in time and see what Buffalo looked like in the 19th century?
Now we can, thanks to a dedicated group of artists, and the painstaking research of Cynthia Van Ness. Sifting through the amazing archives of the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, she has compiled a treasury of steel engravings, woodcuts and lithography, giving readers a glimpse of everyday life in the boom town that was Buffalo in the 1800's.
