Looking for the Big Picture? You can't miss it

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle (NY) - May 1, 2008

Cyclist after cyclist emerged Wednesday evening on a boarded-up East Main Street storefront opposite Chase Tower.

With each 5-by-11-foot panel, a few riders became a race, and an eyesore began to transform into what will be a colorful, 87-foot-long snapshot of the Rochester Criterium.

This is the latest installment in the slowly developing Big Picture Rochester project.

In celebration of Rochester’s one-hundred and seventy-fifth anniversary a series of historic photographs have been placed in the windows of many of Main Street’s buildings that today stand where the original enterprises once served their patrons.

The images were greatly enlarged, reproduced and posted by Ken Sato. These early photographs were found in Rochester’s Downtown, a book written by Donovan Shilling that effectively records those bygone days. For decades Rochesterians found Main Street a magnet for shopping, dining and trading. This was especially true of the two-mile long expanse of shops and stores that reached from the intersection of West Main and Broad Streets to the intersection of East Main Street and Goodman Street.

area2.jpgBy taking a walk by those “windows into the past” and examining the exceptional images one may well recapture a sense of that vibrant spirit of enterprise that made Rochester great. By also reading the captions below the large photographs one can learn much about the location, architecture, and nature of the many noteworthy buildings that once graced our downtown making it a most attractive place for business, entertainment and shopping.

The photo image project is a joint venture with the City of Rochester and a number of local sponsors in whose building windows the photos were displayed. Leading the project was Attorney Gerard D. DiMarco in collaboration with Ken Sato and Donovan A. Shilling.
