Cohoes has long held an attraction for visitors, with reports from European travelers at the Cohoes Falls dating to the 17th century. The Cohoes Falls were a favored destination for writers and romantics, daredevils and diplomats. The textile mills in Cohoes, powered by water from the Mohawk River and an innovative power canal system, would draw immigrant mill workers, industrialists, and engineers. Cohoes was a crossroads for travelers because of its thriving industries, natural wonders, and strategic location along major transportation networks--the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, the Erie and Champlain Canals, railroads, and highways. Those arriving in Cohoes came from all walks of life and many places. In this book, historic postcards take readers on a tour of the sites of Cohoes, including downtown, the mill district, the island, and the hill.
