Local History Photos July 3, 2020

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

Helpful Photo 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 Photos of the Week

All three of our photos for this week show a parade on Market Street, circa 1918. Our records don’t indicate if the parade was held to celebrate the 4th of July, or perhaps the end of World War I – but you can see flags in two of the photos, so it was definitely a patriotic occasion!

 

 

Have good weekend everyone,

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

Helpful Photo 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*

Our three local history photos show construction that occurred in our area in the days of old. Our records for these photos don’t indicate when or where the photos were taken. However, I think just possible the two related photos might be of a building going up near the Corning Club House on Walnut Street in Corning – take a look and tell me what you think!

Local History Photo 1: Local Lumberman

 

Our first photo for this week shows a group of local lumberman, the date and location the photo was taken remain a mystery!

 

 

 

 

Local History Photo 2: Local Lumberman Too


Our second photo for this week is of two lumberman showing us just how big some of the old trees were in our area – way back when! As with photo 1, the date the photo was taken and exactly where it was taken remain a mystery.

 

 

Local History Photo 3: Denison Park Bridge

Our third photo for t his week is not a mystery at all, it shows the Denison Park Bridge at sometime in the past.

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

Helpful Photo 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: Decorated Building

The record for our first photo of the week indicates that the building was located on the corner of Pine and Market Streets and was decorated for a Fireman’s Convention. I’m guessing the fireman’s convention might have coincided with either Memorial Day or Veteran’s Day judging by the patriotic decorations. So, it seems a good time to share this photo as we remember those who have been lost in service to their country on this long Memorial Day weekend.

Local History Photo 2

Our second photo for this week shows a postcard of the old Corning Glass Works complex.

What a neat photo!

Local History Photo 3: East Second Street in Corning

Our final photo for this week features a view of an unpaved East Second Street in Corning looking east from Cedar Street.

I don’t know when the roads in the City of Corning were originally paved;and of course at the moment I don’t have access to all the local history books at the library!

I will, however, do some research when I can, and see if I can find out when the city streets were first paved as that would be an interesting fact to know!

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

Helpful Photo 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: Airplanes

Our first photo for this week, is undated, and shows early air craft somewhere in our area.

Local History Photo 2

Our second photo for this week shows, which again is undated and for which we have no information in our records, shows one of those early air crafts after a crash.

Local History Photo 3: Man on Bike

And our final photo for this week, is date October 2, 1924, and is described only as “Festival.” It features, as you can see, a man riding one of those old fashioned bicycles with a humongous front tire. What a super cool photo! One wonders what type of a festival they were celebrating in Corning on October 2, 1924!
