Local History Photos Of The Week August 3, 2018

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Riverside Honor Roll

Our first photo of the week shows an old Riverside Honor Roll. The honor roll looks like it may have been outside somewhere.

If you know where the honor roll once stood and/or which war the soldiers fought in – let us know!

Photo 2: Woman And Child On Wooden Sidewalk

Our second photo of the week shows a woman and young girl standing on one of the old wooden sidewalks that used to abound locally. And we can also see a church in the background and what appears to be a factory over the river – so I believe this photo was taken in the City of Corning.

If you recognize where the photo was taken let us know!

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
