The Style Shop. The first tenant of this five-story building on the southeast corner of 4th Avenue and 10th Street, built in 1903, was a store operated by John W. Valentine. Later it housed the Day & Knight Bank and was known as the Day & Night Building. The Huntington National Bank acquired and closed the bank in 1919, but the structure continued to be called the Day & Night Building. Over the years, its first-floor space housed a variety of businesses. This photo shows the building when it was occupied by the Style Shop. The up-scale dress shop had been located in a building directly across 4th Avenue, but that building burned, forcing the store to move. By the 1950s, the structure was called the Ritter Building. The Style Shop closed in the late 1970s and was replaced by a Burger King restaurant, which operated for about 10 years. The building’s most recent tenant was an nTelos cell phone store. It’s now vacant. The upper floors once housed many business offices but have been unoccupied for a number of years. Thanks to Jim Casto for the information.

While we no longer have very many photos from those early years, we do have a stash of negatives from the 1950s and early 1960s. Our dated, organized negative archives begin in April 1966.

Since December 2010, we have been scanning boxes of old negatives and posting them here at www.herald-dispatch.com/historicalphotos. We add what caption information we know, and readers have been helping to fill in the gaps.

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

Reprints of these photos are available. Find the photo you would like to purchase, then click "Purchase this photo" underneath it. Prices are $6 for a 4x6, $11 for a 5x7 and $15 for an 8x10. There are also bigger photo sizes and framing options, if you would be interested
