Photo 175 B



 This bank of the Genesee River, stretching from the Slide area to the Portage Bridge in the misty distance, was cleared of its ancient forests by the 1850s. A half century later when this image was taken, the renewal of the forest was underway. Today trees cover this side of the gorge, except in the Slide area.
