Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Gorton Warehouse Fire
Our first photo for this week is of the old Gorton Warehouse after the fire that destroyed the building in March of 1925. Evidently, the warehouse was located near the railroad tracks in the City of Corning as you can see railroad cars in teh background.

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!
