Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the Week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view!)
Photo 1: Vintage Fire Truck
Our first photo for this week shows a vintage fire truck and fireman in the days of old. The photo is undated ; however, by looking at the fire truck I’m speculating it was taken around 1930.
What a cool photo!
If you recognize the fireman, please let us know!
We’d love to include that information in our records.
Photo 2: Vintage Grocery Store
Our second photo is of a local grocery store, the date the photo was taken and the location it was taken are a mystery. However, like the first photo for this week — it is super cool! Based upon the clothing the men are wearing, I’m going to speculate that the photo may have been taken sometime in the 1940s.
If you recognize any of the men in the photo, or if you know where the photo was taken, please let us know.
Have a great weekend!
Corning History is a Southeast Steuben County Library blog.
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!
