Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Photo of East First Street, Corning Postcard:
Our first photo for this week is another photo of a poscard that we have in our Local History Archive.
The photo shows First Street in Corning with a horse and buggy merrily driving down the street!
The view appears to be looking westward.
What a cool old photo!
Photo 2: First National Bank and Market Street:
Our second photo for this week is of a poscard that shows the intersection where Pine Street meets Market Streets and flows into what is today Centerway Square.
The bank building is still there, although the train tracks are long gone.
What neat look at the Corning of the past!
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!
