Local History Photos January 26, 2018

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Early Twentieth Century CFA Sports Team

Our first photo for this week is of a Corning Free Academy sports team. The photo seems to have been taken in the early twentieth century.

And not being a sports fan, I’m not sure if the team consists of basketball players, runners or wrestlers?

I have no idea!

But I bet there are sports fans out there in Internet Land that know!

So if you know the sport and/or anything about the players in the photo, let us know!

Photo 2: CFA Basketball Team 1909-1910 Season:

And our second photo for this week is of the Corning Free Academy 1909-1910 basketball team. And boy don’t they look like serious sportsmen!

Have a great weekend!

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!
