Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Archaeological Dig
Our first photo for this week shows a local archaeological dig in process. The photo seems to have been taken in the 1930s – but where it was taken and who the men in the photo are remains a mystery.
Photo 2: Saint Mary’s Chuch
Our second photo for this week also seems to have been taken in the 1930s and shows The Saint Mary’s Church block back in the day.
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
