Local History Photos of the Week December 28, 2018

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Local Church After Fire

Our first photo for this week shows a local church in the aftermath of a fire. By looking at the cars I would guess the photo might have been taken in the late fifties or early sixties.

And I think perhaps the church might be St. Mary’s…

If you recognize when the photo was taken or have any info regarding the fire, please let us know.

Photo 2: Early Aircraft Flight

Our second photo for this week is of an early aircraft flying somewhere in our area — who is flying the plane and when and where the photo was taken remain a mystery!

If you know any stories about the history of flight in our area, please feel free to share them!

And if you know anything about the photo, please freel free to share that info too!

Have a great weekend!

Linda, SSCL

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!

  1. I believe the location of the church fire shown in the photo was East First Street and Wall Street, 105 East First Street. It is the site of the current First Baptist Church.
