Local History Photos June 30, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: A Mohawk Plane


This “photo” appears to be of a newspaper and features a Mohawk plane that landed at the Corning-Elmira Regional Airport at some point the past.

Photo 2: Somber Young Women

Photo 2 features five somber looking young women dressed in some type of uniform. When/where the photo was taken and who the young women are remains a mystery.

Photo 3: Corning Parade

Photo 3 I recognize as being of a parade taking place in the City of Corning at some time in the past — with a neat Lincoln Rochester float in the foreground.

Have a great day!

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 help!
