Local History Photos of the Week May 17, 2019

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view!)

Photo 1:  Old School 3

Our first photo for this week is of the Old School 3 located at the corner of Chemung and Fifth Streets in Corning. The building is still standing and has been convereted into apartments.

We don’t have a date for the year this photo was taken but it was obviously a long time ago as Chemung Street doesn’t appear to have been paved yet!

Photo 2: Horse & Carriage, Penn Yan, Monday, July 25, 1897

Our second photo is of a group, possible a family, getting ready to take a horse and carraige ride. Who the people are in the photo is a mystery – but the general location the photo was taken and that date are certainly not!

And, wow, look at those hats!

Year Book Snapshots:

This week our snapshots show pages of the 1956 Campbell Savona Spotlight yearbook including photos of the Senior Class!


Have a great weekend!

Linda Reimer, SSCL

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!
