A new photo of the Bow cottages

This photograph emerged today on Facebook, posted by the Perinton Historical Society.

Apparently, the photo was taken about 1958.

Its interesting to see how all these buildings have really good docks, and obviously great waterfront property. From what previous inhabitants have told us, this was a really fun place to live, especially for the children.

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see www.mud-skipper.com). I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my two dogs.

One thought on “A new photo of the Bow cottages”

  1. In the mid 1950s I had a friend that lived in the Oxbow. I was around 14 and we rode horses together, meeting at a stable in Penfield. I thought she was so lucky. She kept her horse right across from her house in the Oxbow. She also could go swimming right off her front porch which extended over the canal. I lived in a middle class home near Eyed park in East Rochester. My mother never understood my envy of where my friend ived.
