Huntington: Then & Now
Author: Terry L. Baldridge
Named in 1870 after railroad tycoon Collis P. Huntington, the city of Huntington is nestled on the southern bank of the majestic Ohio River and the rolling hills of northwestern West Virginia. Author and photographer Terry L. Baldridge has lived in the Huntington area for nearly 20 years and has collected photographs from Marshall University, libraries, and business and private archives. He invites readers to revisit images of Huntington’s past and compare them with photographs captured through the lens of his camera.
Comparing our present to our past is how we understand our history. Arcadia’s Then & Now series makes such local comparisons available. Books in this series offer a special view of American life by placing historical images side by side with contemporary photographs.
