(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Possible Hunting Group?
This photo features seven guys who look like they might possible by getting ready to go hunting. There is no info on where the photo was taken locally — so if you recognize it – or any of the men in the photo – let us know!
Photo 2: One Really Big Tree
I know logging was once a industry in this area but I cannot imagine where they would have found tree that big in this area! If you recognize either of the men in the photo please let us know.
Photo 3: Market Street At Night
This photo was obviously taken of Market Street, in the City of Corning, at night and I guess in the 1940s or 1950s by looking at the cars. What a neat photo! I wonder what type of a store Caines was as I don’t recall it…It is cool to see the post office in the background.
Photo 4: Market Street During The Day
And as this positing is being posted late this week, which was another super busy week in Library Land, here’s a bonus photo! This photo too is of Market Street, this time a day shoot and I would guess the photo was taken in the sixties. Another cool photo!
Have a great weekend!

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!
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.
