Trolleys, cars, and pedestrians pass in front of the Kodak's Tower and Main Office buildings.
Designed by Howard Wright Cutler in 1912, and constructed in 1914, the 16-story, "Kodak Tower" surpassed the Powers Building to become Rochester's tallest building.  in 1929,  the construction of Genesee Valley Trust building (Times Square Building) briefly claimed the city's prestigious title with its "Wings of Progress" extending to a height of 260 ft. Not to be outdone, Kodak quickly added 3 more floors, a mansard roof and an aluminum spire, to reach a total height of 366 ft feet by 1935. It would hold the title until 1968, when the completition of the Xerox Tower stole the title at a height of 443 feet. It currently remains the city's tallest building, with the Kodak Tower currently at #3 and the Powers Building around #18.
