Over 200 never before published photographs are presented in this pictorial history, which spans the early 1800’s through the early 1950’s. Readers will be fascinated by the immense changes that have occurred since the early days, but will also draw connections to the present and can savor the fact that Canandaigua still holds numerous charms of yesteryear.
