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

(Click on the photos for a larger view)

Photo 1: A Dapper Young Man

Who the dapper young man in the photo is – is a mystery! If you know, please let us know!

Photo 2: Postcard of “Wing & Bostwick Department Store Corning”

I’ve heard of Bostwick’s Department Store but I believe it was in existence before my time! If you have any stories about the store please feel free to share them!

Photo 3: Woeppels

I’ve never heard of Woeppels before and have no idea what type of a business it was! If you know where it was and what type of a business it was — let us know!

Have a great weekend!

Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

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 Photo Archive!
