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.

In August 1949, construction began on the Veterans Memorial Field House at 2590 5th Ave., Huntington. The grand opening ceremony, pictured here, was conducted in 1950. The Field House was home to Marshall University basketball from 1950 until the Cam Henderson Center was built in 1981. The facility also has hosted concerts, boxing events and more.
