Herald-Dispatch archive photo -

This was shown on page 29 of “First Families of Huntington,” published by the Herald Advertiser in June 1977. It was a compilation of articles written by Rick Baumgartner for the newspaper and appearing in the newspaper from Oct. 28, 1976, to March 24, 1977. The book’s caption reads: “ The notation in the book reads: "Clowning around on the banks of the Ohio River during the early 1890s. Elliott Northcott is standing at left, with paddle." Thanks to Larry Legge 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 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.
