Local History Photos October 20, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Little Girl Hoop Rolling

Our first photo shows a precious little girl with her rolling hoop and stick. The clothes look like they might be Victorian in vintage.

Where the photo was taken and who the little girl may have been remains a mystery…

Photo 2: Smiling Young Woman 

Our second photo for this week features a smiling young women wearing a fancy gown and tiara.

Whether the lady in fancy clothes was queen of a parade, going to a party or perhaps getting married remains a mystery…

Photo 3: Building on One of the Lakes:

Our final photo for this week seems to have been taken from a boat. The picture shows a building, with a nearby smokestack seen in the background. So perhaps this building was a business located on one of the Finger Lakes…

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 Cricut 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!
