The record for this photo indicates it is of “Members of the Home Defense” and that it was taken in 1918.

You’ll probably want to scroll in to take a closer look of all those dapper World War I era soldiers in their uniforms!

Have a great weekend!

Local History Photos: Friday, November 4, 2016

Hi everyone, I know the calendar says it is Tuesday — but really it is Friday! Just kidding! Since I didn’t get to post a photo last Friday — here are two!

Photo 1: Train Wreck

lh-75-0197

Our record for this first photo only features a general date the photo was taken – 1912. Bonus points to anyone with sharp eyes who can tell the rest of us where this photo was taken!

Photo 2. Drug Store 

lh-75-0191

Our record for photo 2 indicates it is of “Ferguson’s Drug Store – Smith Brothers Hardware & Langworthy’s Department Store.”

I believe the the businesses shown in the photos were in the City of Corning but am not sure — if you know where the businesses were located please enlighten us!

Have a great day!

Linda, SSCL
