(Click on the photos for a larger view)
Photo 1: World War I Era Sailor
Our first photo for this week is of a World War 1 era sailor. Who the sailor was remains a mystery…
Photo 2: West Mart During Flood of 1972
Our second photo for this week is of the old West Mart during the Flood of 1972. I don’t recall where the West Mart was, but if you do – 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!
