Men take their draft physicals in the World War II era at Vanity Fair, 629 4th Ave. Vanity Fair, built in 1915, was once home to the Marshall College basketball team, until the Veterans Memorial Field House opened in 1950. In 1991, the building was renovated into a housing complex for single people who have little or no income by the Cabell-Huntington Coalition for the Homeless.

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.
