Focus 45: Focus 45 Lunch Series with Joe R. Struble
On Thursday March 14, 2013 from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm in Curtis Theatre
Daguerreian studios were established in Rochester as early as 1841 and many thrived here at the “Lion on the Genesee” until nearly 1860. Thousands of daguerreotype portraits were made here of the wealthy Pioneer families as well as of ordinary citizens of the community. Archivist Joe R. Struble will show slides of many of these notable images, as well the first known photographic image of Rochester, an 1852 full-plate daguerreotype of the corner of Main and State streets.
