Local History Photos of the Week June 14, 2019

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

Helpful Viewing Tips are found at the end of the posting for anyone who would like a few tips on how best to view the photos*

And onto the photos of the week!

Photo 1: Corning Marching Band

Our first photo for this week shows a local marching band set up in front of what was then City Hall and is now the Rockwell Museum.

What a great photo!

Wouldn’t you just love to know what the occasion was?


Photo 2: North Side High School Senior Class 1923

Our second photo for this week is of the 1923 Senior Class of North Side High School.

And what a great photo it is! Especially considering  the fact that the original was taken more than ninety years ago; and many photos that are that old aren’t very clear, but this one is! You can clearly see the features of the students who graduates so long ago but are preserved for posterity in this terrific photo!

Year Book Snapshots:

This week our snapshots show, via pages in the yearbook, the students of the Senior Class of North Side high school in 1946:

*To Create A Larger View (make the photos appear bigger on your screen):

You can click on each photo for a larger view. And then click the back arrow on your web browser to go back to the previous screen.

Alternatively, you can press and hold down the CTRL key, on your keyboard, while tapping the + key on your keyboard to make the photos appear larger on your screen.

To Create A Smaller View (make the photos appear smaller on your screen – after you’ve made them appear larger):

 Press and hold the CTRL key on your keyboard and tap the – sign to make the photos appear smaller again.

And If You Use A Mouse – CTRL & Scroll:

If you use a mouse you can do what is called “control and scroll”, to make photos appear larger and then smaller on your screen. To do this –>press and hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard and push the scroll wheel on your mouse away from you for a larger view. To reverse the larger view hold down the same CTRL key on your keyboard and pull the scroll wheel on your mouse towards you.

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!
