Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Postcard Pine Street Looking North
Our first photo for this week shows an old postcard of Pine Street. The view is looking northward as if the photographer was standing in the middle of the intersection of First and Pine Streets looking towards what today would be Centerway Square. What a cool photo! You can even see the old Corning Opera House on the left.
Photo 2: Notre Dame Baseball Player
Our second photo of this week shows a Notre Dame baseball player, evidently named McKee. Who McKee was remains a mystery but he is a dapper looking player in his old school baseball uniform!
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
