*To Create A Larger View (make the photos appear bigger on your screen):

You can click on each photo for a larger view. And then click the back arrow on your web browser to go back to the previous screen.

Alternatively, you can press and hold down the CTRL key, on your keyboard, while tapping the + key on your keyboard to make the photos appear larger on your screen.

To Create A Smaller View (make the photos appear smaller on your screen – after you’ve made them appear larger):

 Press and hold the CTRL key on your keyboard and tap the – sign to make the photos appear smaller again.

And If You Use A Mouse – CTRL & Scroll:

If you use a mouse you can do what is called “control and scroll”, to make photos appear larger and then smaller on your screen. To do this –>press and hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard and push the scroll wheel on your mouse away from you for a larger view. To reverse the larger view hold down the same CTRL key on your keyboard and pull the scroll wheel on your mouse towards you.

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:
At the library you can scan your photos and slides to create digital family albums and slideshows; and even use one of the Circut machines, and other Creation Station equipment, to help you create a special paper family history album.

Also of note, we have the local paper, at times called the Corning Leader, Corning Journal or Corning Daily Journal, on microfilm from 1840 to the present — so you can visit the library and research local history and your family tree if you wish!

And…

And if you find any old photos or postcards of the Corning area that you don’t know what to do with – you can always donate them to the library!

Local History Photos of the Week August 30, 2019

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the Week!

Helpful Viewing Tips are found at the end of the posting for anyone who would like a few tips on how best to view the photos*

Local History Photo 1: Hamilton Street in Painted Post (1921)

Our first photo for this week shows Hamilton Street in Painted Post, looking southerly from Painted Post Creek to Water Street, Painted Post, N.Y. (March 26, 1921)

Local History Photo 2: Corning Parade

Our second photo for the week shows a parade in Corning, view looking north at north end of viaduct- old Symington Plant at right.

I did some research and discovered that the Symington Plant was part of the T. H. Symington manufacturing company whose main office was located in Baltimore, Maryland. The plant in Corning opened in 1904 and made railroad equipment expanding into making shells during World War I.

What a neat photo!

Year Book Snapshots:

This week we’re taking a look at the 1989 Corning-Painted Post East School High Yearbook!

And just a note about the scans, the library’s printer/copier/scanner machines have a scanning bed that allows for scans up to 11 x 17″ – so I tried to get as much of the photos and the text in the scans as possible but you’ll notice some of the texts, and occasionally photos, are cropped just a little bit.

Sorry about that!

You can view the yearbook in its entirety at the library!

Local History Photos of the Week August 23, 2019

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the Week!

Helpful Viewing Tips are found at the end of the posting for anyone who would like a few tips on how best to view the photos*

Local History Photo 1: Corning Free Academy Track Team

Our first photo for this week shows a C.F.A. track team at sometime in the past – and thanks to the viewer who let me in on the correct sports designation, track and not basketball!

The photo is undated. However, in looking the clothing I’m guessing it was taken in the 1940s. What a cool group of young athletes!

Local History Photo 2: Corning Free Academy Baseball Team

Our second photo for this week shows another C.F.A. team, this time a baseball team. This photo too is undated; however, in looking at the clothing I’d say it was taken earlier in the 20th Century than the first photo. If you recognize any of people in either photo, let us know!
