Bittersweet Building

Here is a nighttime image of the Bittersweet building, which is Brockport's most recognizable Victorian structure. Painted on the far side of this building is the "Ivory Soap" advertisement visible on this image. Somewhere I recalled seeing an old image that says "Post Office" under where the Bittersweet sign is now, and found it here. Taken in August of 1997. (click for a larger image)

Main St. Lift Bridge at Night

This is a nighttime image of the Main St. Lift Bridge across the Erie Canal. This is taken from the north-west canal bank, looking south down Main St. You can see reflections of the lights from what was Jimmy Macs at the time, and is now the Port Bar & Grill. Taken in August 1997. (click for a larger view)

Historic Morgan Manning House, on a warm August night in 1997.
This was a long exposure on a tripod, and there was a bit of a breeze blowing the leaves around.

Ingerson's Coffee Shop

Winter in Brockport...
With neon lighting the snow, this image shows the Ingerson's Coffee Shop sign that is no longer there. You can see Barber's Grill at the corner, and off in the distance, the canal bridge control tower. Taken in December of 1997. (click for a larger view)

Corner of Market & Main at Night

This is a view of Main St., at the corner of Market. The light streaks are from cars passing in this long exposure at night. You can see one of Brockport's cast iron street signs, this one with what I think is a harvester (reaper?) that was made here on Market St along the canal. This was taken in August of 1997.

Aerial image of Brockport Main St.

For my first post, I chose an image that gives a nice overview of historic Brockport Main St., showing the Erie canal and lift Bridge in the foreground, the Brockport Police dept., the Town of Sweden offices, the Market St. Fire Station, and even the new Brockport Village office & museum in the top left corner. This was taken in June of 1998. (click for a larger image)
