Time Travel: Little Miss Brave Competition from 2002 and Trip into Downtown Morgantown from 1960.

This recently submitted photo is from 2002 and is of the Little Miss Braves fundraising competition. Pictured, from left, is Kylie Kiefer, April Davis, Kelsey Hillegas, Amelia Cava and Whitney Andrew. The winners were announced annually during the Braves' basketball season.
This scene may look familiar to a lot of people that attended West Virginia University decades ago or were familiar with downtown Morgantown. The photo is from 1960 and the layout remains the same today - just a whole lot of different storefronts and vehicles.
 
Editor's Note: This ongoing photo feature of pictures from Bridgeport and throughout the Mountain State is part of local historian Richard "Dick" Duez's collection. Duez, the unofficial historian of Bridgeport, would appreciate any scanned photos emailed to him for use here or to include in his ongoing efforts to preserve local history.
