The Bowman County Pioneer is hoping to reunite families with some of their photos, if members of the families can stop by the newspaper office.

According to Casandra Horn, the office manager at the newspaper there are hundreds of photographs ranging from the 1950s and 60s through to the present-day which are in the office in the files of the Pioneer and The Finder.

“Each week, until the photos run out, we will be featuring sets of those photos in the hopes that they will be claimed,” she explained.  

Among some of the subjects of the photos are:

Sports teams & individuals

Tractors with and without people

Cars that were for sale

Wedding and engagement photos

Awards photos

Reproductions of old photographs

Senior portraits

An envelope labeled “Scranton People” and one labeled “Bowman People”

Hunting photos

Party photos

Little Cuties

“And some that are not easily put into a category,” Horn added.

“This week we have some cuties!  Is one of these a picture of your grandparents, parents, you or your child?  Stop by the BCP to claim your photos, we are open Monday – Thursday from 8 a.m. To 5 p.m.,” she added.
