Four pictures tell a four thousand word story about Buffalo’s heritage.

Four pictures tell a four thousand word story about Buffalo’s heritage thanks to the Library of Congress and my cousin Bill.  Bill by the way lives in Shrewsbury, England UK.  He had received an email from a friend who had sent him several dozens of images that had been restored by the Library of Congress from the turn of the 19th century.  Within that group of almost 100 photographs were four from the City of Buffalo.

I thought I would share them as they are great images of a City that was an economic giant 110 years ago and was the 8th largest U.S. city as a result.  The will be no more comment the pictures like all pictures tell their own tale.  Hope you enjoy.
