Wellsburg, Main street at 7th...the city plaza is located here now....the building in the background with the cross on the top is at 8th street. This was the former Marks furniture store. This picture was donated to our group by Ken Craft of Norcross, Ga. who found it at a flea market!

The person in the picture is James Elbert Robinson. He was born Sept. 4, 1895, should give some idea when the picture was taken. His father Charles Haller Robinson was mayor of Wellsburg. Thought you would enjoy the picture.
