The above video is a 1985 'Pro Utica' television campaign that attempted in its now outdated efforts to project Utica as a great place to live and invest.  That's just one of the memories, mostly positive, that are featured on a nostalgic Facebook page set up to archive Utica's past.

The Facebook page features classic photos, post cards, videos and back stories from Utica's past.  Users are encouraged to upload photos of their own to add to the collection.

The creators of the page say 'it's dedicated to preserving the history and promoting the growth of Utica, NY.'  Check out the Facebook page here.
