Looking Back At Charleston

Do you remember shopping at the Diamond Department Store, having lunch at the Quarrier Diner, hearing stories about Luna Park?
Charleston, the capital city of West Virginia, has grown in both size and population. Things long remembered have been repurposed, reinvented, or removed. Buildings no longer exist, street have been renamed, downtown shopping shrank as malls and suburban shopping centers grew. What doesn’t change are the memories. Visit the old familiar places, through story and photographs.
