Schneider Funeral Home in Chesapeake, Ohio (now Schneider-Griffin Funeral Home). Date unknown, but possibly from around 1950. According to Drew Griffin, the addition to the original building was added in 1943. The porch and the back addition was added between 1948 and 1960. The porch was later enclosed and is now a business office. The three-car garage apartment seen in the photo was moved from the property possibly in the early 1990s. The building is located in the west end of Chesapeake across from the Nazarene Church. The circular drive also was removed, and a full parking lot was added.

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.
