I tried searching on the Rochester Public Library site, but cannot find any file titled "Rochester History Journal". I am very interested in seeing this! Could you either direct me to the page or let me know if there is a different title so I can check this out?

Thanks for the info!

I've been searching the internet for old maps to see what my neighborhood, and all of Rochester looked like in the past. Well I only found 5 or so maps from the mid 1800s to the 1920s. Does anybody know where I can find more maps from maybe the 1930s-1980s? I'm interested to see how Rochester developed after the expressways were build and after people moved to the suburbs.
