Queen City Adventure

by Mrs. Emma Latier
Elmira, New York 1902

Emma had a heck of good time in the Big City.

She was a young married woman from Wayne, New York who came to Elmira, New York with her husband Floyd. They took advantage of the high life in the “big city.” Elmira was a grand place in 1902 with a population was 35,000 and rising. Upscale shops, opera and theatre, fun activities at Eldridge Park and Rorick’s Glen, and fine restaurants kept Emma busy. Elmira was also a main railroad hub with sixty-seven trains each day coming and going in all directions. Harper's New York & Erie Railroad Guide gave Elmira the nickname “Queen City of the Southern Tier.” This is Emma’s "Queen City Adventure."
