Local History Photos August 18, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Cool Cats with an Early Model Airplane

I have no idea who the young men in the photo are, where the photo was taken or even the name of the model of aircraft. However, that is indeed one cool early model airplane! If you recognize anyone in the photo or have some info on the model of airplane let us know!

Photo 2: The Old Corning Hospital

Our second photo of the week is of the old Corning Hospital. I’m assuming from the collection of items in the foreground of the photo that it was taken after the flood of ’72. And the only bit of the building that remains today is part of the incinerator stack. Time flies!

Photo 3: Mystery Item!

I have no idea why this photo was added to our collection. It appears to be a bottle of olives. Although, perhaps they might be grapes but unless the fruit/veggie won an award at a local fair — I haven’t a clue as to why this photo is important. If you know – let us know!

Have a great weekend!

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

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 Photo Archive!
