Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Young Girl Turn Of The Century
Our first photo for this week shows a young girl in a formal shot. By the look of the clothing, I’m guessing this photo was taken at the turn of the Twentieth Century.
Who the girl was remains a mystery…
Photo 2: Erie Railway Station, Painted Post
Our second photo for this week is of a postcard, and unlike our first photo, there is no mystery here! This photo shows the old Erie Railway Station in Painted Post!
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!
