Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Clock Tower
This photo is another photo taken of a photo. However, it is a neat one! It shows the Clock Tower in the foreground and a Corning Glass factory in the background.
Photo 2: Bridge Street Service Station After Flood of ’72
Our second photo for this week shows the Bridge Street Service Station after the Flood of 1972. The photo offers us a view looking westward, past what today would be part of the grounds of the Corning Senior Center.
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!
