Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Engraving a Steuben Bowl
Our first photo for this week is of an old postcard titled “Engraving a Steuben Bowl.” And it does indeed show a Steuben Glass employee engraving a glass bowl. It does now however, say who the engraver is — although that information might have been on the back of the postcard. So if you recognize the Steuben Glass worker – let us know!
Photo 2: Horse & Carriage Transportation
Our second photo for this week is of a group of people that seem about to take a ride in a horse driven carriage.
And we may not know who the people are – but we do know when and where the photo was taken! In Penn Yan on Monday, July 26, 1897.
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!
