Local History Photos June 25, 2017

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Kids in Carriage

Our first photo for this week is one of a number of photos found in our local history archive that appears to be a picture taken of a picture. And I haven’t a clue as to what the number 54 refers to. It also remains a mystery who the children in the photo are and where the photo was taken. Nevertheless it is a neat photo showing a slice of life in days gone by.

Photo 2: Two Girls & Dog On Steps

Our second photo for the week features two young girls and a dog sitting on pretty fancy steps and entryway at an unknown local house. I you recognize the girls or the steps on the house please let us know. And dig those cool outfits – this photo, like the first one of the week, offers a view into what daily life was like in days gone by — at least if you lived in a fancy house!

Photo 3: Unknown Stone Work

Our third photo for the week features what appears to be some fancy stone work on the exterior of a building, or perhaps a statue or fountain? The record for the photo only notes that it was taken in Corning NY. So if you recognize where the photo was taken please let us know.

Have a great day!

Linda, SSCL

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.
