Local History Photo: Friday, March 17, 2017

Hi everyone, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Here are our local history photos of the week!

Click on the photos for a larger view…

Photo 1: A Serious Solider

Photo 1 is a solider in what I believe to be a World War I uniform. If anyone knows the name of this serious and patriotic young man, please let us know!

Photo 2: An Early Photo of Northside Blodgett

Photo 2 is an old, old photo of Northside Blodgett. Look at that car! What year do you suppose the car was made? Sometime in the 1920s or 1930s perhaps?

Photo 3: North Side Grammar School

And Photo 3 is a photo of an old post card of the old North Side Grammar School — which I selected simply because it is cool!

Have a great week everyone!

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.
