Ona, WV


In 1960, Senator John F. Kennedy entered the Democratic primary in West Virginia, running against Hubert H. Humphrey. A Roman Catholic from Massachusetts, Kennedy had to work hard to win over voters skeptical of his religion and his eastern liberal views. And he did. He is shown here campaigning in Ona, a crossroads town in Cabell County, in front of the U.S. Post Office. I love the woman in the window, upper left, just above the post office sign.
