Local History Photos of the Week February 1, 2019

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

Photos 1 – 3 show the building of a bridge in Corning near the old Corning Glass Works factory. The bridge may be the Briscoe Bridge that was built in the early in the 20th Century.

The Corning Glass Works factor was demolished, and today that location features the headquarters of Corning Incorporated.

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!
