Photo by Tom Rivers: These bronze statues were erected in 1998 at Seneca Falls and show a trio of women’s rights trailblazers. Susan B. Anthony is at left, with Amelia Bloomer in center and Elizabeth Cady Stanton at right. Seneca Falls commemorates a meeting by the three women back in 1851. The statues – “When Anthony met Stanton” – are a gift from New York State to Seneca Falls in 1998, when George Pataki was governor. The gift was made “On Behalf of the Governor’s Commission Honoring the Achievements of Women,” according to a plaque by the display.
