It describes: 'how the pioneers finally settled on the Genesee falls as the proper site for a mill town; how the villagers there readjusted to the fact that it was becoming a city; how the Flour City gave way to the Flower City, and that, in turn, to a cosmopolitan city; how the emphasis on good government evolved; how George Eastman's interests and leardership developed; how Rochesterians responded to two world wars and the Great Depression, as well as new metropolitan problems; and finally, what the present generation gap discloses concerning the city's recent past and possible future.'
