The record for this photo has no information – so if you know anything about the people in the photo and/or what they were doing let us know!

It is a neat, and fairly clear photo, of a number of men that appear to be firefighters and policemen among others transporting slated items via horse drawn cart.

See the marching band near the driver of the horse drawn cart in the foreground, I wonder if perhaps they’d been in a parade…

Have a great weekend!

Hi everyone, here is our local history photo of the week.

This record for this photo is completely blank — however, if you look closely at the photo you can see at the top it says “B.P.O.E. Corning, N. Y.” So I think we can safely say this is a photo of an Elks Club building in Corning at some time in the past. My only question is — is this actually the same Elks Club building that we see on Walnut Street today? If so what a difference! The old building had great class the new building looks like a upgrade from the 1950s or 1960s.

Have a great weekend!

The record for this neat photo is brief and it doesn’t give a year for the photo it does say:

“Float In Parade For Football Game – CFA vs. GlenCove”

I’ve never heard of GlenCove but then when I went to CFA it was a middle school and not a high school. So perhaps some of you know a thing or two about CFA Football and/or the GlenCove Football team?

If you know more than we do about our local history photos – please let us know!

Have a great weekend!

Local History Photo: Friday, February 3, 2017

Hi everyone, happy February!

Here is our local history photo of the week.

The record for this photo notes that the subject is “W. Kisbaugh,” that the location is “Riverside” and the photo was taken on April 3, 1924.

I don’t know which of the ladies seen in the photo is W. Kishbaugh, or if perhaps that is the person who owned the building. And, indeed, it is hard to make out details about the two ladies in the photo; however, I think the billboards on the building are really cool! The billboards/posters, from left to right and clockwise read”

Chemung Tobacco

Bank Roll Scrap

&

Pinch Nut

And the fourth poster features a baseball player but I cannot make out any of the text on the sign.

What a cool snap shot of Riverside in 1924!

Have a great weekend!
