The Flood of ’72 Videos

A friend of mine recently posted the above video on her Facebook. It’s a great look back at Corning a few days before and directly after the flood of ’72.

Earlier this year I had a chance to check out the Flood of ’72 exhibit at the Corning Museum of Glass.  It’s worth going out of your way to explore.  The exhibit is at the Museum in it’s own space at the Rakow Library (behind the studio). I believe it’s free and open to the public.

One of my favorite parts of the exhibit is the video they produced about the flood’s effects on the museum. Watch it below:

    Is it just me or was Corning totally groovy in the 70s?
