Question: how did most Rochesterians get to the ballyard in 1910? Answer: simply ask Mr. Stone (somehow, I missed this one). Opening day, 1910.
Until Bay and Webster no longer hosted Rochester’s baseball (the last year there was 1928), the streetcar was your best transportation choice.
Now take a look at this map (I feel like I have finally found the mother lode with the discovery of this extraordinary document) to see that you simply hop on the No. 6 car and you’re at the park.
Discovering this map has helped me to solve some really knotty urban problems. Stay tuned – much more to come very soon.
