Buffalo and its Environs: The City of Buffalo from 1850 Through the End of the 19th Century as Seen by the Engraver

Art Dialogue Gallery, located at 5 Linwood Avenue, is putting on a show that will delight local history buffs. The antique hand colored engravings included in the show tell a tale of this city in a way that nothing else can.

The engravings were printed from 1850 through the late 1890’s, at a time when Buffalo was well on its way to becoming an undeniable boomtown. Many of the images depict sights (and sites) that are long since gone, though Buffalo is currently attempting to pay homage to some of what you see in these scenes.
