Susan B. Anthony. She was a lifetime activist for equal rights and especially important in the movement to gain women's right to vote. She and her sister lived in a modest home that was part of a working-class neighborhood. It was here she organized the women's suffrage movement and welcomed many progressive reformers including her longtime friend and Rochester's other most famous historical figure; Frederick Douglass.
My eye was caught by this stairway window, unusual in design and color... perhaps the most unique feature of this otherwise common home of a very uncommon, progressive and influential American.
