Local History Photo: Friday, March 31, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1. Little Girl Sitting On Stone Slab

Photo 1 features a little girl sitting on what one might assume is a stone slab meant to be used for building purposes. Her name, the date the photo was taken and where it was taken remain a mystery…

Photo 2. The Corning Painted Post Road During The 1935 Flood

I’m not sure where this photo was taken as I’ve never heard of a road called “The Corning Painted Post Road.” The photo was taken sometime during the Flood of 1935. If you recognize the location of the photo please let us know!

And our last photo for this week shows a shot of Painted Post during the 1935 Flood!

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.
