Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Steuben Street in 1921
Our first photo, features a cool view of an unpaved Steuben Street in 1921.
And this photo is another photo taken of a photo so it really is the original that is crooked!
Photo 2: C.F.A. Baseball Team
Our second photo for this week is of a serious looking C.F.A. baseball team – year unknown!
If you can tell us anything more about life on Steuben Street in Corning or the history of baseball in the Crystal City please do!
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!
