Trying To Date Little Joe Tower Photo

Hi everyone, we’re trying to answer a two-part research question!

What year was this photo of the unpainted Little Joe Tower taken?

And, if anyone knows, what year was the Little Joe Tower originally painted?

All help is appreciated!

Thanks a bunch,

Photo 1: Street Scene with Horse Drawn Cart

Our first photo for this week shows a neat street scene! Several people are walking down the street and in the foreground you can see a horse drawn cart – a sweet ode to the days of old!

Photo 2: Street Scene With Two Horses & Carriages 

Our second photo for this week shows two horses and carriages driving down a local unpaved street – which street is a mystery – if you know, please 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…

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!

Photo 1 & Bonus Photo: School Kids & Who Is Who

Our first photo for this week shows a group of local school kids in the early Twentieth Century. They look like they are having a good time! Especially the boys hanging on to the pillars.

The Bonus photo puts names with the faces — from left to right.

So this time around, we know who is who in this photo!

Photo 2: Lewis Farm History

Our second photo for this week offers a brief history, and three photos of the Lewis Farm. From the history, I believe the Lewis Farm, was/is located in Caton.

If you know anything about the Lewis Farm, and I’m betting someone out there does, please let is know.

Have a great weekend!
