Local History Photos October 6, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1 The J. M. Grieg Dry Goods Store:

Our first photo is another photo taken of a photo! This one features the J. M. Grieg Dry Goods Store which I’m guessing what on Market Street in Corning some time in the past.

Photo 2 Postcard Steamboat at Penn Yan, NY

Our second photo of today shows a postcard of a steamboat coming into the dock in Penn Yan, NY.

Photo 3: Postcard Erie Railroad Station & St. James Hotel, Corning, NY

And our third photo is of a postcard of the Old Erie Railroad Station and Saint James Hotel that once graced the city of Corning.

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!
