These buildings were at 3rd Avenue at 11th Street. All of these buildings came down as part of the city’s urban renewal project, and the site was used for construction of the Mack & Dave’s store. The big building on the corner is Star’s Furniture Warehouse. To its left is another furniture store, Walker’s. Next is where the C.M. Love hardware store was located before it moved to the corner of 3rd Avenue and 10th Street. A large sign on the side of the last building visible at left identifies it as the Emmons-Hawkins Hardware Co., once the largest wholesale hardware dealer in the state of West Virginia. 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.
