This photo was published Aug. 3, 1942, according to Nora Burns. It was a parade of the West Virginia Fire Association in Huntington. The two boys at left are Carl Burns (Nora's husband) and Eugene Jenkins. The photo was taken at the intersection of 4th Avenue and 8th Street. The building on the corner is the Dickinson Furniture building. The fire truck is a 1940 model American LaFrance, according to Robert S. Miller, deputy chief of the Ohio River Road Volunteer Fire Department. Miller served on the Huntington Fire Department.

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.
