Hi everyone, happy February!

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!

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.
