The wading pool at St. Cloud Commons, 1135 West 17th St. According to Fred Charles, "My sister, Barbra Charles Haptonstall, and I would go there when we were little kids and lived on Madison Avenue. That would be around 1945 to 1948. Our mother would take us. I remember lying on the short wall in the picture getting our tans. We also liked the spinning swing shown in the far right in the photo. One person would make it spin while the others would ride." Rosey Stewart said she remembers attending several picnics there through the late 1950s and early 1960s at the close of Kellogg Holliness Church's Vacation Bible School. Thanks also to Richard McCoy and Nicholas Lavender for identifying the photo.

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.

These photos were from a box of 4x5 negatives. They are most likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

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.
