For my love of Rochester and image geekiness, I present some old flickergraphs of Rochester. These animated gifs are made by taking two photographs right next to each other (but not in the exact same place) and then flicking between the two of them very fast to give the illusion of depth.

I originally found these on Rochester Subway. These five are my favourite, but check out Rochester Subway to see them all.
