The item record for this photo indicates that it is of the Riverside Builders Float that appeared in a Parade held in Corning, NY on July 4, 1929.

What a cool float!

Don’t forget at the library you can scan your photos and slides to create digital family albums and slideshows; and even use one of our Circut machines, and other Creation Station equipment, to help you create a special paper family history album or calendar for 2017!

Have a great weekend!

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

Don’t forget 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 or calendar for 2017!

And here’s your weekly reminder that 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…

If you find any old photos of the Corning area that you don’t know what to do with – you can always donate them to the library! We’re happy to add new photos to our Local History Photo Archive.
