Local History Photos July 14, 2017

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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: Postcard Photo Pine Street & Erie Avenue (Denison Parkway)

Photo 1 is a photo of an old postcard that offers a view looking up Pine Street from Erie Avenue (Denison Parkway). I believe that is the old Opera House seen on the right and apparently “Uncle Frank’s office” was near the Opera House…

Photo 2: Susquehanna Trail Monument

Photo 2 is of the Susquehanna Trail Monument although I’ll admit, I don’t know where it is, or was, located. If you know where it was/is located please let us know!

Photo 3: Unknown & Unpaved Street

Photo 3 is of an unknown and unpaved street in the vicinity. If you recognize which street it is — let us know!

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 2018!

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!

And…

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.
