Wood block engraving of the Genesee (High) Falls at Rochester, N.Y.
From John W. Barber's Historical Collections of the Stete of New York.

Circa 1852.

From the book:

"The following is a view of the middle or main falls, as seen for the east bank fof the Genesee. The Rochester and Auburn railroad bridge is viewed a few rods north of the falls. The perpendicular fall of the water at this place is 96 feet; towards the right of the engraving is seen a small tabular propjection from the general line of the verge of the precipice. From this projection, in the fall of 1829, Sam Patch took a last leap, and perished, not much unlike many others before him."

Present-day view would be from the East Bank, click here.
