The Herald-Dispatch

Herald-Dispatch photo archive - The old C&O passenger station in the 900 block of 7th Avenue was built in 1912-1913. The building is now occupied by CSX Transportation. The Collis P. Huntington statue in front is the work of internationally known sculptor Gutzon Borglum, who is best know as the creator of the colossal heads of the four presidents carved in the face of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The statue was dedicated Oct. 23, 1924, while a crowd of more than 7,000 looked on as it was unveiled and presented to the city and the C&O Railway. The statue was given by the late Mrs. H.E. (Arabella) Huntington, who was Collis Huntington's second wife and his widow, who herself died just six weeks prior to the dedication. In May 1977, the statue was moved to a new home in Heritage Village in downtown to stand near a vintage steam locomotive, a coal tender and a refurbished Pullman car. In the fall of 1999, the statue was again moved to stand in front of the CSX building on 7th Avenue.

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. They are most likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

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.
