I was browsing around and ran onto these. The first four are thinly veiled advertisements for a dyeing business, a silk plant, Island Foundry and a "novelty" company which made various household items. The last is the Brown Collection of old Wheeling photographs; the first 31 are CW era or before. Image 27 is the 1852 menu for the dinner to greet the B&O Railroad; its detail will demonstrate the kind of fare available in the Ohio Valley in March when the railroad was not completely linked to Baltimore.
