Brockport Main St. - "Bank Block"

Here is the "bank block" at night, with cars driving past on Main St., & the Rochester Telephone tower looking down on Brockport, as it has for as long as I can remember. I have always wondered what the view looks like from up there. The United Methodist Church has anchored the south end of this block since 1877. The building on the north end was originally an impressive 3 floor bank with a tower up front, as you see here in the bottom half of this Albert Stone image. In 1927 it was rebuilt in it's current gothic stone form. Another Stone image shows it in the early 30's. Taken in August of 1997. (click for larger view)
