The road layout looks the same, but there are plenty of business changes along this main section of downtown Bridgeport. The photo was taken in 1987. Recognize any businesses and, if so, please feel free to comment below.
This is the former Carlisle School in Clarksburg. The photo is from 1962 the excitement from many of the students is because it's the last day of classes.
 
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.
