Description

Ontario County Transportation encompasses the means of travel in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the towns of Canandaigua, Geneva, Phelps, Naples, Victor, Clifton Springs, Manchester, and Shortsville, New York. Beginning with the primitive horse and buggy and ending with the state-of-the-art automobile, this volume chronicles the history of transportation in a realistic and fascinating way. Featured in this diverse volume are never-before-published pictures of locomotives and railroads, early aviation and the Flying Farmers, delivery vehicles, water vessels, fire trucks, and trolleys.

Throughout history, Ontario County was regarded as an area of favorable influence. For this very reason, it had such iconic visitors as Franklin D. Roosevelt and Andrew Johnson, who are shown within the chapter entitled "Railway Classics." Also among the eminent persons who have appeared in the area in the past are Canandaigua native and automobile pioneer John North Willys, Geneva native and Secretary of the Treasury Charles J. Folger, and Phelps innovator Charles Lane, whose chief achievement was building one of the first fire trucks in Ontario County.
