Having grown up in Rochester myself, and having dragged the old courthouse statue of justice up out of the City Dump when my mother insisted on rescuing it, I really appreciate this book. Lots of intriguing tidbits, much better
written than the other option. Well done, and a far better choice for a gift or for one's own library.

Much better than "Lost Rochester", more interesting, more depthReviewed in the United States on 2 July 2020
Great purchaseReviewed in the United States on 14 January 2013
Rochester Postcard History was a wonderful pictorial history with interesting narrative of the pictures by Alan Calavano. I would recommend it to any history buff, and particularly any Rochester, Minnesota resident.
