Market street looking south toward the intersection of 16th street, showing the old U.S. Custom House, now West Virginia Independence Hall. A tornado hit downtown Wheeling, Sunday, April 19, 1925, causing half a million dollars worth of damage, around $8 million in today's market. "The force was so prodigious that an eyewitness described it as a whirling funnel in which pieces of wood and even bricks were violently revolving. Another said that telephone poles were struck down like match stems." [Quote from Real Photo Postcards of Wheeling, W. Va., Tony Paree, 2019] -Image from the Real Photo Postcard collection of the Ohio County Public Library Archives.
