Local History Photo: Friday, March 3, 2017

Hi everyone, here are our local history photos of the week!

Photo 1: Laughing Lady In Cool Hat

This lady in the foreground looks like she’s having a good time! We have no idea who she is as there are only two pieces of information on the record card for this photo. The subject is “Drake Photo: Huntington Valley Country Club,” and the date is May 28, 1900. So if you recognize where the photo was taken or, even better, if you know who the laughing lady in the photo was — let us know!

Photo 2: Dapper CFA Football Team

The record card for this photo gives the subject as “CFA Football Team” and what a dapper group of  young gentlemen they are!

The date listed on the record card is 1928; although I do wonder if that is the correct year, since the  young man seen at the very left end of the front row has on a shirt that says “CFA 01” and the football, seen at the front and center of the photo appears to say “CFA 00.”

There is no information listed on the record card as to who the sportsmen in the photo are — so if you know – let us know!

Have a great week!

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.
