Herald-Dispatch archive photo -

These residences were on the south side of 4th Avenue between 10th and 11th streets, circa 1883. To get a present-day photograph, a photographer would stand in Applebee's west parking lot looking south. Today, the camera would see all businesses with the Professional Building in the center. The photograph appears on page 178 of George Seldon Wallace's classic book, "Cabell County Annals and Families," 1935. Thanks to Larry Legge for identifying the photo.

Gallery: Do you remember? -- Dec. 20, 2010 (updated captions)

On Sunday morning, Jan. 17, 1909, the first edition of The Herald-Dispatch appeared on the streets of Huntington. Fast-forward 101 years, and that's a lot of history.

We have discovered a treasure trove of old negatives and photos at The Herald-Dispatch. Some of the images, we know. Others, we have no idea.

In the coming months, we will scan the negatives and photos, which are crumbling and degrading as the years pass. We will create photo galleries with the images and add what caption information we know.

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.
