The Journal Gazette

  • When we go looking for photo negatives in The Journal Gazette's archive, the search starts with these red books. Each year from the 1950s until 2000 has a "diary" where the newspaper's photo staff would write what they were taking pictures of each day.

Welcome to History Journal

COREY MCMAKEN | The Journal Gazette

Welcome to The Journal Gazette's History Journal.

This page will be home to new and archive material previously known as Throwback Thursday as well as other photos and stories of historical interest from the newspaper.

For the past three years, we have posted a Throwback Thursday photo from our archive on The Journal Gazette's social media accounts every week. Those posts will continue, but those photos will also be collected on this page.

Beginning in December, the monthly Throwback Thursday feature with gallery and stories will become known as History Journal and will appear on this page. Previous feature galleries already appear here for you to enjoy.

We welcome your input on History Journal content. If you have a year, subject, event or specific date you would like to see featured, please email Assistant Features Editor Corey McMaken at You can also email comments on previously published History Journal or Throwback Thursday features – we might include them in future stories.

A note on suggesting photos: Though we have pages in the archive stretching back to the 1800s, our collection of photo negatives begins in the early 1940s.
