Local History Photo of the Week June 8, 2018

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Bluff Point, Kueka Lake 

Just in time for the advent of summer our first photos shows an old postcard of Bluff Point, Kueka Lake.

Photo 2: Erie Train Depot, Corning, NY 

And our second photo of the week shows the old Erie Train Depot once located in Corning and now long gone. But wow! Those women in their long skirts and the horse drawn carriages – they conjure up a great feeling of the romance of days gone by!

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: reimerl@stls.org
