Local History Photos December 15, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Drawing of the Patterson Inn:

Our first photo for this week appears to featuring a drawing of the Patterson Inn at some time in the past. If you recognize the drawing or know who the artist was – let us know!

Photo 2: Partially Flooded Local Street:

Our second photo for this week is of a partially flooded local street.

I’m guessing the photo may have been taken during the Flood of 1935.

I don’t recognize the street — if you do – let us know!

Photo 3: Cool Queen Anne Style House:

Our last photo for this week features a cool Queen Anne style house with a neat rounded porch and copula style look out room.

I’ve no idea where this house is, or was as the case may be, but what a cool style!

If you recognize where the house is, or was, please let us know!

Have a great day,

Linda, SSCL

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

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!
