Intro Lesson:  Today’s ride focused on the history of manufacturing in Rochester.  Emily put together a great ride incorporating stops at several historical manufacturing buildings and sites in the city.   This included the old Eaton and Oakley bicycle works, the flour mills along Brown’s race, the old French’s mustard factory, and the Anderson Artist’s Building on Anderson Alley.We were fortunate to get a guided tour of several of the artist’s spaces at the Anderson Artist’s Building – the Pistachio Press letterpress studio run by Rachael and Jake; Tom’s book bindery; and Erich’s photography studio (complete with a darkroom!).  Check out the pics!!

Word of the Day:  manufacturing – 1560s, “something made by hand,” from M.Fr. manufacture, from M.L. *manufactura (cf. It. manifattura, Sp. manufactura), from L. manu, ablative of manus “hand”
