Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Presbyterian Church Fire Or Bell Tower Construction:
Our first photo for this week is of the Presbyterian Church in Corning, either after a fire in the bell tower, or, while the bell tower was being constructed.
And I must admit I can’t tell from the photo which situation has unfolded! If you can tell by looking at the photo, or if you know if there was a fire at the Presbyterian Church at some time in the past – please let us know.
Photo 2: Pier’s Corning Marching Band:
Our second photo for this week is a cool one of Pier’s Corning Marching Band at some time in the past.
If you know anything about Pier’s Marching Band – 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!
