Gwinn Flour Mill. The bags read "Kansas Perfection Flour." According to "Cabell County Annals and Families" by George Selden Wallace Sr., 1935, "In 1889 W.W. Gwinn and O.E. Gwinn had a mill at Glenwood, West Virginia, but moved to Huntington and built what was then a modern roller mill on its present location." Ken Reffeitt said the Mill was at the northwest corner of Commerce Avenue and 16th Street. According to the book, "From time to time the mill has been enlarged and is now (in 1935) a modern 500-barrel mill and employs fifty people. D.B. Gwinn is president, and its products are marketed in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, and the Carolinas." Reffeitt said that Mr. and Mrs. D. Byrd Gwinn lived on the north side of the 1500 block of 5th Avenue in the house that is now the forensic studies laboratory of Marshall University. Their daughter, Elizabeth, married Hugh D. Stillman, well-known businessman who later was an administrator at Marshall University.

While we no longer have very many photos from those early years, we do have a stash of negatives from the 1950s and early 1960s. Our dated, organized negative archives begin in April 1966.

Since December 2010, we have been scanning boxes of old negatives and posting them here at www.herald-dispatch.com/historicalphotos. We add what caption information we know, and readers have been helping to fill in the gaps.

If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), email online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.

Reprints of these photos are available. Find the photo you would like to purchase, then click "Purchase this photo" underneath it. Prices are $6 for a 4x6, $11 for a 5x7 and $15 for an 8x10. There are also bigger photo sizes and framing options, if you would be interested.
