Old postcards from Wheeling and elsewhere

The other day my brother Cliff Richie, the family genealogist, emailed me some photos.

He wrote, "I came across some old pictures and postcards that you might be interested in. One is a steam boat with Jones as a last name. The two post cards are very old. Notice on the Wheeling one, there are no autos, only horses. The one with the men standing on the wharf house could possibly be from one of the weir dams or some town wharf. Notice some have heavy gloves and work clothes on."

If anyone knows anything about the people, places or boats in these photos, we'd be glad to hear it. If there are any problems with copyrights, let me know and I will take the affected photos down ASAP.


Back to the others.
