I guess this was back in the good old days,or really before the good old days,because times were a lot better in the 60s and 70s.but these are some good photos.

It was around the early 50's when there was no jobs and people started leaving to the North and finding jobs in the automobile factories. I for one left in 53 but was so homesick and would come home for a weekend and cry all the way to about Logan. There is no place like McDowell even today. I still miss it and will always be home to me.

I know what youre saying is correct,but can you imagine McDowell County having about one hundred thousand people,compared to whats here now,thats unreal.but for many years McDowell County was the leading coal producing area in the nation.thats something for us to be proud of,but also makes you wonder why we are so depressed now.think about it,we should have the very best of everything,roads,water,recreat ion,housing,and it could go on and on and on,but we dont really have anything to show for all our precious gold that have been shipped out of here all these years.But,I still love it here,and I am very proud to tell anyone that I am from McDowell County.One thing I must say that we do have is good people,and if you have ever lived,or stayed away from here,especially in a city,you will know exactly what I mean.McDowell County has some of the best people in it that you can go all over the world and never find any better people.I know someone will kick back to me about the druggies here,but that is a nationwide problem,and is bad anywhere you go.for a good example of good people,this site(Bradshaw)topix site,you will find some of the best people you could ever find anywhere.just read threads from other areas and you will see the difference in people.this site has some of the most loving,careing,understanding,a nd helpful people you would want.I am not a resident of Bradshaw,but do know about the good people.sorry about such long post,didnt intend for it to be so long,and didnt want to be boring,but wanted to let the good posters from your area to know,you all are great people,and cant be beat.it would be very hard for me to name all the good people there,so I will just say "ALL".but will say that Carebear,and Tundra,are the first ones that comes to my mind,but ALL,are great!!!!!!!!!!
