Old Panorama of Rochester, Genesee, & Erie Canal
This is one of the earliest known, single shot, panoramic photos of Rochester and may have been shot with a #4 Kodak Panoram panoramic camera, introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1899. Until cameras like this were introduced, panoramic photos had to be taken using several glass plates side by side.
Mass-produced panoramic cameras worked on the swing-lens principle, used roll film, and did not need a tripod. These types of cameras made small panoramas, measuring no more than twelve inches long with a field of view of almost 180-degrees.

After the Erie Canal was rerouted south of downtown Rochester, the Rochester
Industrial & Rapid Transit Railway (the subway) was built in
its place as a link between the five different railroads and interurban trolley
lines that served the Rochester area. As the industrial landscape of Rochester
changed, and highways replaced the railroads, the Rochester subway gradually
became a relic of a bygone era. In 1956 the subway was abandoned and much of
its route was converted into Interstate 490 built to connect Rochester
with the New York State Thruway (I-90). Read more about the history of the Rochester Subway.
