Local History Photos October 5, 2017

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week for last week! That is right, this is the posting that should have gone up on September 29!

The posting for this week will be up tomorrow morning!

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1 Saint Mary’s Church:

This one is a neat photo of Saint Mary’s Church; and looking at the car I’d guess it was taken sometime in the 1930s.

Photo 2 Market Street Parade:

Photo 2 is of a parade on Market Street perhaps in the 1950s…

Photo 3 Postcard of Corning Glass Works

Photo 3 is a photo of a postcard of the old Corning Glass Works — date unknown.

If you know, let us know!

We have the photo of the post card but not the post card itself which might have had that info on the back side.

Have a great day!

Linda, SSCL

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!
