Local History Photos March 30, 2018

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Postcard of Market Street 

Our first photo for this week is of a postcard that shows Market Street in the days of old!

I’m guessing the photo was taken in the horse and buggy days of the early Twentieth Century.

If you know anything about the postcard or the history of Market Street that you’d like to share – let us know!

Photo 2: Market Street Too

Our second photo of Market Street appears to have been taken in the thirties.

What a cool view of Market Street looking eastward toward the intersection of Market Street and Pine. And I love the Baron Steuben Hotel sign!

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!

  1. My relative Margaret (Carlson) Swanson was a chef at the hotel! Her husband, Martin, was the head chef there for some time! Margaret was born in 1915 and died in 2006 so I am unsure what years she was there but I would love to learn more about here! Thank you for posting about this hotel!
