Anyone know any of the individuals pictured here for this ribbon-cutting event back on Feb. 28, 1985 for students with special needs in the community? It appears to be at the old site of Johnson Elementary School. If you know more details, please include them in the comments below.
This picture from the Batch Towers at Rolland Glass in May of 1946 shows some old cars lined up along what is today Williams Avenue in the North View section of Clarksburg. 
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, 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. You can email photos, or let him know how to acquire copies of photos you may have in your possession, to Duez at
