Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: Old Corning Baseball Team
Our first photo for this week shows an old Corning baseball team. The photo appears to have been taken in the early twentieth century.
Photo 2: Erwin Town Map
Our second photo for this week shows the land holdings in the Town of Erwin, or at least part of the town, many, many years ago. You can see that Arthur Erwin, and several other members of the Erwin Family, owned quite a bit of land in that are. Also seen are land holdings by Bostwick and Smith.
What a neat old map!
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!
We’re happy to add photos/postcards of local persons, places or things of the past to our local history collection! If you have questions about donating local history items to the library send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
