E.P. Reed & Co.
The Shoe Factory Art Co-op  250 N. Goodman St.  Studio 212  Rochester, NY 14607  (585)732-0036
From the mid 1800's through the turn of the century, Rochester, NY was one of the leading shoe manufacturing towns 
in the US.  Edgar P. Reed was a prominent manufacturer and designer of women's shoes.  In 1906, he moved his factory,
 E.P. Reed & Co., into this building at 250 N. Goodman St. from it's former location on St. Paul St.  The company was
a family business and active for many years after his death.  Tiny shoe nails still fall from the ceilings of our studios.
The History of Our Building
"I look for a splendid future for Rochester as a shoe center and I take pride, 
naturally, in the title they have given me as the "Daddy of the trade".
-Edgar P. Reed  1919
