Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
Photo 1: Denison Park Winter 1923
A frosty photo of Denison Park from 1923!
Photo 2: Drake House Postcard
And old postcard showing the Drake House which I believe was located on East Second Street in Corning.
The postcard description states “Residence Of The Late F. N. Drake – Corning.”
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!
