Local History Photo: June, 9, 2017

 

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Train Station

The record for this photo indicates only that it is a train station located in Corning. If you know where the station was located, please let us know!

Photo 2: Masonic Lodge

 

Our second photo for this week is of the Masonic Lodge located on Walnut Street in Corning. What year the photo was taken remains a mystery…

Photo 3: Painted Post Square with Indian Monument 

Our final local history photo for the week features the old square in Painted Post with the Indian Monument right in the middle of the unpaved square. We don’t have an exact date for when the photo was taken – although I’ll venture a guess, based on on the horse drawn carts, that it was taken prior to World War II.

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.

  1. The train station was located on the North-East corner of Erie Avenue (now Denison Parkway) and Pine Street.

    I remember standing on that corner watching Harry Truman waving from the rear car of his Eastbound train in 1947, during his Presidential campaign.
