Devastating news tonight. The long time voice of the Buffalo Sabres, Rick Jeanneret, has passed away at the age of 81.

Rick Jeanneret, also referred to as RJ, announced for the Sabres for 51 years from 1971 through his retirement last year.

Thank you for the smiles you brought to our faces and the excitement you brought to the game. I'll never see another Sabres goal without hearing you yell "GOOOOOOAL!"

It was on this day in 1869 that a young Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, became editor of The Buffalo Express newspaper and moved to our city! Twain was only 33 when he first moved to Buffalo, and the two years that followed here were a time filled with both triumph and tragedy for the young author. This image in our collection shows Twain around the time he first came to Buffalo.

Overlooking the Outer Harbor, c1920 - Buffalo rose to prominence in the early 20th century due to its lakefront locus, railway connections and the grain elevators lining the Buffalo Creek. And it grew thanks to the laborers - mostly immigrants attracted by industry - who built the city. The newspapers of the time were a reflection of those residents: in addition to English, there were papers published in German, Polish, and Italian.

Historic Photographs - Watson Silhouette, Grain Silos on the Buffalo River - c1900

At one time in Buffalo's history, the grain elevators dominated the skyline of the waterfront and served as a symbol of Buffalo's industrial importance as the largest supplier of grain in the world. The elevators also developed interesting architectural highlights such as a cupola on the roof.

The Watson Elevator was unique in that it had a slip directly underneath it allowing canal boats to dock under the bins and have the grain dropped directly into the boat's hold using only the force of gravity.

In 1843, merchant Joseph Dart and engineer Robert Dunbar built the first steam-driven grain elevator in Buffalo. Its design was later mimicked throughout the region. The elevators consisted of a “marine leg” that scooped grain from the hulls of ships into a large silo, as well as offices and testing facilities. The Watson Elevator, built in 1862, was unlike others in the city, allowing ships to dock directly beneath the silo for faster loading.
