Local History Photo: Friday, April 21, 2017

Hi everyone, here are our local history photos of the week!

And as we skipped a week between postings — this week I’m offering four photos instead of three!

Photo 1: Graduating Class

Photo 1 appears to be of a graduating class. However, who the students are, which school the group graduated from, and which school they graduated from remain mysteries.

Photo 2: Serious Woman with Glasses

Our second photo for this week is of a serious young woman wearing glasses. In looking at her clothes, I would guess this photo was taken sometime in the first quarter of the 20th Century — and I wonder if the dress might be a wedding dress? Who the women is remains a mystery. It is a great photo though! She looks like she’s pondering philosophical questions!

Photo 3: Flooded Office

The record for this photo indicates the flooded office was in one of the local Corning Glass buildings but which one and when remain a mystery. The flood might have been the 35′ Flood or the ’72 Flood…

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:
Don’t forget 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 or calendar for 2017!

And here’s your weekly reminder that 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 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 new photos to our Local History Photo Archive.
