Rochester’s rich history is one made up of photography (home of Kodak) and a large manufacturing industry- accredited to the influx of German and Italian immigrants in the 19th century. In the 1830’s, the city was referred to as the “Flour City”, due to Rochester being the largest producer of flour in the world (at the time), and was an original boom town. Due to this great success of the city, it even became known as “The Lion of the West” for its exploding population and manufacturing industry. Comically, another nickname for the town was “Flower City”, after the annual Lilac Festival, which still runs today. Other than nicknames, the American public also associates Rochester with Susan B. Anthony. Anthony was a leading woman in the suffragette movement and called Rochester her home, until her death in 1906.
