Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the week!
(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: World War I Era Solider
Our first photo for this week is a duo-photo showing two shots of the same World War I era solider. He certainly strikes a smart pose in his uniform!
Photo 2: World War I Era Solider Too
Our second photo for this week, also features a local man who was a World War I era solider. The photo of this young solider appears to have been taken at an army camp. And this solider too looks smart in his uniform.
If you recognize either of the young soldiers in these photos, please 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!
