Great Mystery photo of Sunday, March 1, 2015.

My first thought was the people are waiting for a train carrying a presidential candidate through--could this be? I'm not familiar enough with the area to guess where the photo might have been taken.

I look forward to your photos and Moments in Time. Thank you

I am amazed at the content. WV may not be big time but it is certainly HOME. I live in Hopkins SC. Was stationed at Fort Jackson and lingered. Bonnie wanted flat lands and I wanted hills so a good comprimize. You have done fantastic work and I, for one,admire and appreciate it.

Just stumbled across your website while doing research into my family tree! Wondering if you have any info on the West Virginia Training School and Mission, in Point Pleasant. My mom and my aunt grew up there in the 40's and 50's. I actually found your site while trying to find more info on the mental hospital, because I'd wondered if my grandmother might have spent some time there. She had a nervous breakdown and took my mom and my aunt to her brother's house in PP, told them to watch the kids so she could go get some bullets for her gun because she was going to shoot them then herself! That's how they ended up in the orphanage. I don't know if my grandmother was taken to the mental hospital there in PP, but sure would like to find out! At any rate, would love to know more if you have any info or pictures. Thanks!

Admin reply: There was a West Virginia Training School, but it was way up the river at St Marys. PP had a Black training school for boys however.

Just to let you know that one of your contributors, (Elk School Train) Curtis M Morris, my father, passed away on December 11 after a short fight with pancreatic cancer.
I was regaled for years by dad's stories of riding the school train, and remember myself watching the long coal trains lumber down those tracks when I would spend summers at my grandparents house near Pentacre,right down the hollow from Quick. We took him back from NC for burial back in WVA...in my mothers families cemetery near Walton.
Love your site...
J.C. Morris

VERY NICELY DONE,Mr. Waters! I have just seen your photo titled "C&O Bridge" in "The Charleston Gazette" for Monday, November 24. 2-14.
I know the man who used to do this same old photo printing in "The Gazette" every Monday. I cannot now, however, now think of his name. Have you taken his place? What is his name, PLEASE? And his phone number and address.
YOUR PHOTOS ARE ALL EXCELLENT -- and so is your website!
Thank you very much for sharing your photos! I sure look forward to your response. Lloyd.................

I grew on the 1700 block of Va. St. We were the last house standing from the Blvd to Piedmont when Arch had it all taken by eminent domain. Would love to see any pictures of that area if they are around. I may have overlooked them if they are already here.

I enjoyed your 1930 photo and article of the Patrick St bridge in the Charleston Gazette. My dad, Raymond E. Bolyard was one of the six men killed in the March 1929 accident. I was born in September 1929.

Jerry, many thanks, I have spent a few hours just looking at the photos and remembering. I still come home when I can, and you are correct, WVA is always home no matter where you go or where you end up. Many thanks for a superb Web Site. Regards
