Local History Photos of the Week May 4, 2018

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Postcard of Old School 3

Old School 3 is of course, no longer a school and also still standing on Chemung Street today. And in fact, the building looks almost exact the same – although the postcard is undated.

If you have stories you’d like to share about attending old School 3, or possibly, living in the building today since it has been re-purposed as condos – let us know!

Photo 2: Possible Store Manager

We haven’t a clue as to who this dapper and serious man is nor, what store or office building he worked in. However, he looks like he might be the manager of the place in since he is dressed spiffily and sitting behind a neat desk.

If you know who the gentleman in the photo is, or if you recognize the store or office he worked in – let us know!

Bonus Photo: Train!

This train might very well have been stopped on Erie Avenue, what is today Denison Parkway, but that is just a guess!

If you recognize where this photo was taken, let us know!

Have a great weekend!

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!
