Gallery: Do you remember? -- March 28, 2011

Mar. 30, 2011 @ 10:34 AM

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. 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.

Yes, this was before OSHA-approved. Any idea what is going on in this photo? They seem to be laughing about it. Date and subject are unknown, although the photo is likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.
