Larry Orr-Sign Painter of Lindley ,NY leaves his mark on Market St-Corning,NY

From Corning/ Painted Post Historical Society Newsletter "POSTINGS"
Hawks Signs
The Southside Neighborhood Association initiated a fund drive to restore the Hawks Crystal Glass signs on the upper fronts of the buildings that house Vitrix glass at 77 w. Markets St. and OTB At 85 W. Market St. ,Corning. After a lot of bureaucratic hurdles and delays ,the signs were repainted this summer by Larry Orr(Lindley resident-Kitty) as close to the original colors as possible based on old pictures of the buildings . Check it out if you haven't already done so. Hats off to Peetie and Tom Dimitroff and the Association for preserving this piece of Corning's glass legacy. "
  • Great job, Larry .We are still waiting to hear your speech!!! When the leaves are gone, I plan to take a photo of the sign again.
