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. The box identifies the photos as being from a political rally for U.S. Sen. Robert Taft (R-Ohio). It is most likely from 1952, with the banquet being at the Hotel Prichard and the big rally at the Veterans' Memorial Field House. Taft died in 1953.

Browse through the gallery.

Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
