Wow! This is an awesome site, love the old pictures.. it's a step back into time . I'm not from W.V myself, but my grandma and mom are. I'm actually trying to help my find her biological father and more information on my grandma as she wasn't very forthcoming. Is anyone here from Seth and remembers a Karen Carpenter?

This is a beautiful site and you have obviously put a lot of work into it. I am not a West Virginia native and was looking around to help my son with a project about Charleston as part of a Cub Scout project but I'm also a historian by training so I kept looking after he found what he wanted (pictures of the old railroad bridge) because of the number of variety of pictures and stories you have. I also let the rest of his Scout den know about the site because it is such a wealth of material.

A fellow graduate of Charleston Catholic High sent your site link to me and I have been entranced with nostalgia for days! Thanks for your wonderful work. I grew up on Wyoming St. There are so many places and sights you have posted that I remember. From Tottens Pure Oil to Shoney's!
My father introduced me to Mr. Schoenbaum one time when I returned to Charleston for a visit on the C & O from DC. I left WV in 1955 but still there in spirit.

Admin reply: Thanks for dropping by! Will be adding a lot more photos this winter.

Great website, Jerry. Also, it was good to meet you yesterday at the Carbide Camps Reunion. Your videos of Camp Galahad, where I worked all or part of ten summers from 1967-78, was a treat. Personal request: If you can send me Susie Acevedo's mailing address, I would greatly appreciate it, as I have lost it and would like to follow up on sending her the Boy Scout history book I wrote. She requested it yesterday at the Hunting & Fishing Club reunion. Unfortunately I have misplaced her address. Keep on doing fine work.

My parents bought LT 76-A LUNA PARK ADN around 30 years ago. We have found some interesting items in our backyard over the years. When we leveled the yard for a pool we found glass bottles, rings, old bolts that appear to date back to Luna Park.

More recently a mirror was broken from the front bedroom closet door revealing a letter from the builder of several houses in the area.

Let me know if you would be interested in a picture of the letter for your site.

Thanks,

Who is Eugene A. Carter?

Admin reply: Eugene A. Carter was born in 1909 in Prudence, Fayette County.

At the age of 17, he went to work for the New River Pocahontas Consolidated Coal Company, the same coal company that employed his father.

In 1934, during the Depression, Eugene A. Carter came to Charleston and began working as a driver for a local dairy company. He helped to form the first local Teamsters Union. In 1936, he was elected President of Teamsters Local 175 and served in that capacity until 1974. In 1945, Eugene A. Carter was elected President of the West Virginia Federation of Labor and served in that capacity until the AFL State Federation and the CIO Industrial Union Council merged to form the West Virginia Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, in 1957.

Hi. Your web site is fantastic. I work for a historic preservation firm and we are currently working with the property owner on the old Staats Hospital building and the little building next to it. On either May 31st or June 1st you ran a picture of the Fischer & Fischer Meats building on West Washington Street which showed the storefront area of the Little Staats building and a portion of Staats Hospital building. We are trying to get a hard copy of that picture. Is that possible? If so, please email me and let me know the specifics. Of course, we are willing to pay for the picture. Many thanks.

Added: My name is Jacob Edwin (Ed) Fischer, son of the late Albert Henry Fischer who was part owner of Fischer & Fischer Meats. I would like to thank you along with my sister and cousins for publishing the picture of the market on Sunday May, 31st. This picture brought back a lot of good memories of when our dads were in business. I have told the stories many times of the lines out the door when meat was rationed.
