Local History Photos August 11, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Trio Walking Down The Street

Our first photo features a trio of gentlemen walking down the street. The photo looks like it was taken when the weather was colder, so I wonder if perhaps the men in the photo were walking in a Armistice Day Parade? If you recognize any of the men in the photo or the location where the photo was taken let us know!

Photo 2: Possible Market Street In Corning?

Our second photo of the week shows a building that might be on Market Street in Corning. The building on the corner looks to me, mind you without walking down Market Street to double check, like it might be the building on the corner of Walnut and Market Streets but perhaps someone with eagle eyes will take a look and know right off the top!

Photo 3: A Local Church

Our third photo for this week features part of the stone work on, I believe, a local church. I don’t recognize the church which tells my it isn’t the church I was raised in – Christ Episcopal Church in Corning. So if you recognize which church is seen in the photo let us know!

Have a great weekend!

Linda, SSCL

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

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 Photo Archive!
