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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
