Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: New Baron Steuben Hotel
The caption on this photo, which is seen in faded writing at the top of the photo, says “New Baron Steuben Hotel, Corning, N.Y.”
Photo 2: Greek Revival Home
Our second photo for the week is of a Greek Revival building. And the building looks familiar but I can’t quite recall where I’ve seen it! If you know where the home is located let us know!
Photo 3: Parade
And our final photo for this week looks like it might be of an old Colonial Days Parade. However, I can’t quite tell from the black and white photo if those are truly native American braves riding the horses or simply persons dressed up in native clothing. Perhaps someone with eagle eyes can take a look and see. And if you know anything about the parade of the men riding the horses let us know!
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!
