Local History Photos July 21, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Lumberjacks In Lumbermill

This photo is a bit grainy; however, I think it is cool! It shows a slice of life in days gone by. Specifically, it shows us a bit of the life of lumberjacks/mill workers locally, back in the days when there was a local lumber industry. The photo is undated and features a blank description – so if recognize where the photo was taken please let us know!

Photo 2: Covered Bridge & Field

Our second photo of the week shows a covered bridge and a farmer’s field in fall or winter. Where the covered bridge was is a mystery…

Photo 3: Depression Era House & Car

Our third photo for the week features what appears to be a Depression era house and, what might just be a Ford Model T. I imagine the house has long since gone although if you recognize the location 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 2018!

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.
