It's amazing to see the transformation in Buffalo over the years. Buffalo is, and was, so rich in architectural beauty and was absolutely a booming town back in the early 1900s. At the turn of the 20th century, Buffalo was one of the most populated cities in the United States of America. Some of the highlights of the early 1900s are when Western New York hosted the Pan American Expo in 1901 and, at that time, became one of the central hubs for the car industry in America.

If you have never gotten the chance to do so, you have to go check out the Buffalo History Museum. We all live here in Western New York, but naturally and not surprisingly, not a TON of people know a lot about the history of Buffalo. After all, it's not extremely important information that you, by all means, NEED to know, but it certainly is pretty cool.

I love looking at the before and after pictures of Buffalo from back in the day, such as the one before that the Buffalo History Museum posted. If you have lived in Buffalo your entire life, you probably have seen so much change in person, but until you see pictures of a before and after, sometimes it's hard to really see the impact of change. Check out these pictures from Instagram at the corner of Main Street and Genesee, before the train was put in.

Currently, the Graylynn gin bar is at the corner. According to their Instagram post, "Buffalo then and now: Main and Genesee Streets downtown, circa 1870-2022. The historic photo of this corner is from our photo archives".
