Gallery: Do you remember? -- March 9, 2011 -- final edition of the Huntington Advertiser

Mar. 09, 2011 @ 12:37 PM

The Huntington Advertiser, which began daily publication in 1889, merged with The Herald-Dispatch in 1927 to form the Huntington Publishing Company. The two staffs remained separate and competitive. These photos show the final printing of the Advertiser on Aug. 24, 1979.

We have a treasure trove of old negatives and photos at The Herald-Dispatch. Some of the images, we know. Others, we have no idea.

We are scanning the negatives and photos and running some of the photos in the newspaper.

Browse through the gallery. If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), e-mail online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
