Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
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!
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!
