Susan B. Anthony
Susan B. Anthony
Boasting some of the oldest original homes in Rochester, Susan B. Anthony was home to some VERY prestigious residents. Chief among them: the namesake of the neighborhood. After a lifetime of social reform work, Ms. Anthony agreed to move in with her sister Mary towards the end of her journeyed life to 17 Madison St., currently a memorial to Susan B. Anthony's life and work.
Another notable resident was the Cunningham Automobile Company. Originally manufacturing carriages and sleighs (incorporated in 1882), the company shifted into automobiles (1896-1936) during the industry's infancy. Prized for luxury and craftsmanship, Cunningham cars are still held in great esteem alongside Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Duesenberg, and Maybach. The 33 Litchfield St. factory building is now a complex of lofts for city residents (with a Cunningham carriage in their lobby).
The Susan B. Anthony neighborhood shirt is an asphalt grey to both recognize the domain of Cunningham automobiles as well as the metaphorical 'road' traveled by Susan B. Anthony. The graphic is a Cunningham automobile, a statement of luxury for the turn of the century economic elite. The Cunningham automobile is a bold sunflower gold to represent the primary color of the women's suffrage movement, hugely organized and supported by Susan B. Anthony.
The Rochester subway system traveled west to east servicing as much of the city neighborhoods as possible: Residents and visitors of Susan B. Anthony would jump on and off the Main and Oak station for access.
