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