Help me solve this photographic mystery.

I have just posted 44 pictures that I hope someone will help me identify. I found the negatives at a garage sale 15 years ago. Here is a link to the set:

The photos are magnificent, done by a talented photographer. Here’s a few:

Unknown Family046

Unknown Family044

I have found many clues to the identity which may help:

1. The negatives were in a box of darkroom items I bought in a garage sale in Aiken SC

2. There is a Delaware license plate seen on one of the cars and a billboard says”...ington, Del” presumably Wilmington Delaware.

3. The largest employer in Aiken at the time wa DuPont (The Savanah River Plant). DuPont headquareters is in Wilmington. So it is likely that someone in the family worked for DuPont. Most of the people who came from Delaware to work here were upper level managers or engineers.

4. There is a photo of a car marked with “Skyline Drive, 10/18/1940”
Unknown Family042

5. The negative are 2 1/2” by 3 1/2” size and seem to be CUT film, although they may have been ROLL film and cut after processing. The film was AGFA SUPREME PAN or AGFA SUPER PLENA.

6. The names “Ellie & Herb”, “Truner Construction Company”, “Sterling Auto Sales” and “Olivere” appear in some of the pictures.

The following clues have been added since the original post. Thanks to my Flickr snoops for the information.
7. One photo is of The Great Falls Park, Virginia.

Do you recognize anyone in these pictures? Please let me know. My goal is to find this family and return to pictures to them.

How very cool.

I don't know these people, but wish you luck in finding them.

Have you tried contacting the DuPont plant or maybe a local SC library? Or, maybe post a few on the site where the guy finds old film and returns photos? I can't remember the link... I'll see if I can find it in my bookmarks.
