These buildings stood on the northeast corner of 3rd Avenue and 9th Street. Polk’s 1949 Huntington City Directory identifies the businesses as the Star Furniture Exchange on the corner, Boggess Cut-Rate Drugs next door, then The Star (a clothing store) and Albert’s Finance, a pawnbroker. All these came down during the city’s downtown urban renewal project, and the property is now part of Pullman Square. Thanks to Jim Casto for the information.

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.
