Hi everyone, here are our local history photos of the week!
Photo 1: A Dapper Gentleman
(Click on the photo for a larger view)
Photo 1 shows a dapper gentleman wearing a bowler hat standing somewhere, I believe, on the Southside hill section of Corning. I think he may be standing on Pine Street with the intersection of Pine and Second Street seen behind him. And the horse trotting down the street, seen at the right hand edge of the photo is cool too! If you recognize the dapper gentleman in the photo let us know who he is!
Photo 2: A Local Church?
Photo 2 shows a church, and, I don’t think the church is in the City of Corning as it doesn’t look familiar to me. And I can’t quite read the name of the church which is seen above the entryway to the church. So the obvious question is — does anyone recognize the church? And if so — where is it!
Have a great week!
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!
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.
