Local History Photo of the Week June 22, 2018

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Northside Blodgett Circa 1930s

Our first photo for this week shows the recently demolished Northside Blodgett building circa the 1930s. And I’m guessing on the date based upon the car seen parked near the school.

It is also interesting to note that the area where the photographer was standing seems to have been a field at the time. And sometime in the year since houses have been built on that side of the street.

Photo 2: Mystery Football Team

And our second photo this week is something of a mystery as it obviously shows a football team; but which football team and what year the photo was taken remain a mystery.

If you know anything about the football team seen in the photo or the players on the team – 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…

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

Hi everyone, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Here are our local history photos of the week!

Photo 1: A Serious Solider

Photo 1 is a solider in what I believe to be a World War I uniform. If anyone knows the name of this serious and patriotic young man, please let us know!

Photo 2: An Early Photo of Northside Blodgett

Photo 2 is an old, old photo of Northside Blodgett. Look at that car! What year do you suppose the car was made? Sometime in the 1920s or 1930s perhaps?

Photo 3: North Side Grammar School

And Photo 3 is a photo of an old post card of the old North Side Grammar School — which I selected simply because it is cool!

Have a great week everyone!

Local History Photo: Friday, January 20, 2017

Hi everyone, here is our Local History Photo of the week!

And this is another one of those interesting photos from our Local History Photo Archive, that features what appears to be a photo of a photo.

lh-photo-77-1961

This photo is of Mr. H. Stasch but who or where the photo was taken remain a mystery.

I don’t know who Mr. H. Stasch was but I’m wondering if he wasn’t a teacher or principal or academic of some kind, as it looks like that might just be a portion of the Northside Blodgett school building behind him — the lower windows look similar…

Whoever he was, Mr. H. Stasch was certainly a dapper fellow!

And if you know who he was and/or recognize where this photo was taken let us hear from you!
