Local History Photos Of The Week October 1, 2016

Happy Saturday morning everyone!

Here are two local history photos for your weekend perusal!

Local History Photo 1:

This one appears to be a parade and by the hats the men are wearing I’d guess this photo was taken in the early 20th Century — perhaps on First Street in Corning? We have no information on the photo itself — so it is a mystery!

Local History Photo 2:

Our second photo for this week does have a written records which notes:

“Parade: Drill team competition on C.F.A. Campus.”

This photo too looks like it might have been taken early in the 30th Century – and I wonder if the men in uniform were drilling as part of a training to become fireman?

And those are our local history photos of the week!
