Rochester, New York, 5 Shares, I/U, Black with view of river and waterfall on top, gold foil seal at lower left, the company was formed to develop a compressed air powered street car to replace steam power. Signed by James M. Bois as president. The company secured the rights to the lower falls of the Genesee River and developed machinery to convert the water power to compressed air. After a successful test on a short 1 block track, it was hoped to be Rochester's first pneumatic streetcar. After the test, the company basically disappeared and was not referenced again in local papers of that period. Possibly unique and interesting railroad related certificate.
