This is a photo of Bridgeport's 1979 coaching staff, a team that went on to win the Class AAA state championship. Shown, from left, are Richard Iaquinta, Al Lanzy, Coach Wayne Jamison, and Tom Brown.
This photo, believed to about 100 years old, shows individuals waiting to board a train in the Ziesing section of Harrison County. For many years, train was one of the primary modes of transportation.
