Curious as to why these students at Bridgeport High School all have their arms in the air? Well, they're cheering for the Indians' basketball team at the 1992 state tournament in Charleston. Despite the fan support, the Tribe fell in the opening round to Williamson by an 84-63 score. This photo is from the 1992 Ki-Cu-Wa Yearbook.
This  photo is from 1939 and shows the front of a theater in Romney. Theaters like this are now almost virtually extinct.

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
