By Dick Duez on September 15, 2019 from History Blog via Connect-Bridgeport.com

See anyone you recognize? This is a photo of the Bridgeport High School majorettes from 1969. Pictured, believed to be from left, are Sandy Williams, Carol Nelson, Susan Payez, Gwen Showalter, Edie Orr, Nancy Scott, Ginny Showalter, Frankie Todd, Cindy Pick and Jennie Frey. Kneeling is head majorette Libby Clutter.
Although not sure of the date of this newspaper advertisement, it's possibly 100 years old. And was common at one time. This is from Elkins.
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.
