The rugged gorge of the Genesee, showing Middle and Upper Falls,
Portage, N.Y., USA."
Co, Chicago, New York, London
captures the view from Inspiration Point as it looked when Mr.
Letchworth donated his Glen Iris Estate to the People of New
York. A tourist (sitting rather close to the edge) is enjoying
the view that includes the Middle and Upper Falls as well as
the Erie Railroad bridge. She seems especially interested in
the old bed of the Genesee Valley Canal on the far bank, which
at the time of the photograph was the route of the Pennsylvania
Railroad.. A larger image is shown below. Click here for an earlier view from Inspiration
Point showing the Canal.
