The Finger Lakes are a group of 11 long, narrow, roughly north–south lakes in an area informally called the Finger Lakes region in Central New York, in the United States

The Finger Lakes are a group of 11 long, narrow, roughly north–south lakes in an area informally called the Finger Lakes region in Central New York, in the United States. This region straddles the northern and transitional edge, known as the Finger Lakes Uplands and Gorges ecoregion, of the Northern Allegheny Plateau and the Ontario Lowlands ecoregion of the Great Lakes Lowlands.

Finger Lakes Memories takes a long, mesmerizing look back at a land of 11 lakes, a land of monasteries and mansions, a U.S. president, abolitionists, women’s rights activists, Mark Twain, early aviation, and superb universities. Featuring the work of early-20th-century photographer George Bentley Corby, the book reflects the remarkable scenic beauty of the area before commercial and residential development. Poignant and often zestful photographs of farm labors, school chums, and small-town life emerge from a region where, like welcoming hands, the Finger Lakes beckon all to their safe solitudes, there to be inspired, comforted, educated, and encouraged. It is doubtful there is another book that so totally and vividly captures the everyday life of the era.

This book wasn't quite what I was looking for but is good from a historical perspective.

all photos, very little stories

This book was a gift, and was well received since I have always had a liking of the Finger Lakes region of western New York State.Chronicles through the photos of a bright, fairly well to do lad, who was into photography when few but professionals could afford a camera. Family life as well as local events and social gatherings are all caught in time by his relatively good photographic eye. Filled will local images and pretty good captions ( some left me wanting a bit more info),the first part focuses on life around the town of Lima NY,then as he grows up and travels he visits many more distant land marks (some now long gone) and captures many of the places that made the Finger Lakes so desirable for the wealthy from the 1800's until the Great Depression. Great broad range of subject matter make this a must have for any history buff into America at the turn of the century and especially if you have roots in the Finger Lakes.

A disappointment. I was hoping for historical photos of the lakes and life on the lakes. Instead, this is almost exclusively an album of the personal experiences of a young man at the turn of the century. There are numerous pictures of his family and friends, his family's inland dairy farm in Lima, high school in Honeoye, college in Genesee Wesleyan and Cornell. There are a few pictures of family's visits to Conesus Lake but if you'll find precious little about life and on the Finger Lakes.
This book is a nice snapshot of one man's observations of upstate NY at the turn of the century, but its title "Finger Lakes Memories" is unfortunate. The publisher should consider a book that is actually about the Finger Lakes and make use of the many historical pictures that are out there.
