The Valley City Times-Record plans to run a historical photograph each week submitted by our readers.

This photograph was provided by Bob Nagle of Peoria, Ariz. Nagle said he was a college student in 1960 when he coached Valley City Lincoln School's fifth grade boys basketball team at the request of his younger brother for the remainder of the season after their coach had left.

Nagle said the team went on to win the VC Grade School Tourney at the end of the season by beating Richie School “a basket by Gary Peterson with only seconds remaining. That and stellar defense by Jerry Anderson won the game. Richie had come into the tourney undefeated.”

Photos can be of people, events or places in Barnes County from 10, 20, 30 years ago, or even older. Please submit photographs by email to, or drop them by our office at 146 Third Street NE.
