On Sunday, Jan. 17, 1909, the first edition of The Herald-Dispatch hit the streets of Huntington. 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.

The first officially authorized safe havens for people to use heroin and other narcotics in hopes of curbing deadly overdoses by providing a monitored place for drug users to partake have been cleared to open in New York City. Would you like to see an overdose prevention center open locally?
