SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Syracuse went from a small village to an industrial city, thanks to the Erie Canal and then the railroads that followed.
Transporting raw materials, manufactured goods, and people is important for economic growth. And being on the Erie Canal got Syracuse growing.
Transportation is the focus of this week’s Throwback Thursday with the help of our friends at the Onondaga Historical Association.
We’re going to try something new today. We are comparing some of our Throwback Thursday phots to what the scene looks like today.
