Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Local Grammar School
Our first photo for this week shows a local grammar school at some time in the past. If you recognize the building and where it was located – let us know!
Photo 2: Addison Postcard
Our second photo for this week is yet another photo in our archive that was taken of a photo, or in this case of a postcard.
And although the name of the street is cut off – I believe this shows the main street in Addison perhaps in the 1920s.
If you recognize which street is show on the postcard- please let us know!
Bonus Photo: Page From Corning Opera House Program
I know the old Corning Opera House was located on Pine Street somewhere near where the old Woolworth’s building was, across the street from the Githler Tanner Building.
However, I don’t know what year the opera house was torn down.
And I don’t know much about the history of the opera house.
But I do know there is a photo in our local history archive of a page from the program for the annual closing concert of the Corning Opera House which was held on Friday, June 14, 1912!
If you know any stories about the old Corning Opera House, 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!
