Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: A Local Overpass View
Photo 1 is a view of what was, or is, assumedly a local overpass. The cars appear to be from the 1930s but where the overpass was remains a mystery. If you know — let us know!
Photo 2: Cleaned & Painted Building
Our second photo of the week is of what might be an municipal building or, possibly, a church. Where in our region the building is, or was as the case may be remains a mystery.
Photo 3: Local Archaeological Dig
Our final photo for this week is of what appears to be an archaeological dig. But when and where the dig occurred, and what was determined about the remains – remain a mystery. The notation on the top left hand edge of the photo says ” July – 193″ – but whether that means the photo was taken in a July of the 1930s or if it was taken in July and is photo 193 in a series remains a mystery…
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!
