OK - so I had to have my fix. As many of you know, I thrive on detailed artwork. Putting in every nut and bolt so to speak. So as I was looking at a photo I took of the Powers Building in downtown Rochester I wondered what it would have looked like in its' hey day from that vantage point. So I did some research. it didn't take long. This is a popular building and there are many pictures of it going back to the late 1880s'. Using a photo from 1904 I did some reconstruction of the details that are no longer there. It took a while but the end result was wonderful(and painful to my fingers). There may be a detail or two that I did incorrectly. But with this much on one page how can you tell. LOL. Anyway here it is as it was and below is as it is today.
