Herald-Dispatch archive photo -

The Guyandotte Club once stood on the southeast corner of 4th Avenue and 11th Street, across from the present Coal Exchange Building. The club was formed sometime after the turn of the 20th century and survived the 1913 and 1937 floods. It survived until shortly after World War II, when the building was razed. A small diner was constructed on part of the vacant lot. However, that diner fell to the wrecker's ball in the late 1950s or early 1960s. There are many old postcards showing this building from the right of the front, but this view is rare. Thanks to Larry Legge for the information.

Gallery: Do you remember? -- Jan. 10, 2011

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 images were in a filing folder in a cabinet. Some of them have run in the newspaper before, and many of them had some information on the back.

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.
