The Genesee Valley Trust Company building is now known as the Times Square Building, and is one of the most distinctive structures in Rochester, New York–largely because of the massive wings mounted on top.
This is another early scan of a postcard from a second-hand store in Oneonta NY. It was postmarked in 1933. The message on the other side reads:
“Listen over the Radio very carefully. You may hear us broadcasting from W.H.A.M. - Edna" It was sent to the Stoddarts in Delhi NY.

Yes, this Canadian (eh?) film has religious undertones and takes place mainly at a Catholic school, but this was a nice, uplifting movie about running. I would give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. It’s available on Netflix Instant.
Here’s the synopsis: Ralph (Adam Butcher) is a typical teenager with atypical questions, the largest of which concerns his mother. She’s fallen into a coma, and the 14-year-old has set his sights on winning the 1954 Boston Marathon in a makeshift barter with God to make his mother well.
Did I cry? Yes, a tear was shed…but overall very nice film.
