Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Our first photo for this week shows the recently demolished Northside Blodgett building circa the 1930s. And I’m guessing on the date based upon the car seen parked near the school.
It is also interesting to note that the area where the photographer was standing seems to have been a field at the time. And sometime in the year since houses have been built on that side of the street.
Photo 2: Mystery Football Team
And our second photo this week is something of a mystery as it obviously shows a football team; but which football team and what year the photo was taken remain a mystery.
If you know anything about the football team seen in the photo or the players on the team – let us know!
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 or postcards 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 photos/postcards of local persons, places or things of the past to our local history collection! If you have questions about donating local history items to the library send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
