12 Rare Photos From Buffalo That Will Take You Straight To The Past

The only thing better than living in Buffalo now is living here in the past! Not because it was better, but because living history can be fascinating. Since we’re betting that most of our readers live in the here-and-now (time travel isn’t a thing yet, as far as we know) we thought that sharing some photos of the past would be a nice way to honor the history of this wonderful city. These old photos of Buffalo will remind you what life used to be like here.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Thanks to Forgotten Buffalo on Facebook, who does a wonderful job of documenting the history of the city to share with all of us.

Another great (and sweet!) way to experience Buffalo’s past is by visiting this candy shop on Main Street that’s been around since 1927.
