A Bygone Time
I recently came into possesion of some photos and an old notebook belonging to my wifes great grandfather who was a police officer and thought I would share.
They are from around the late 1890's

A Staffycher lad too!A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.

Why did we get rid of those hats and go with the ridiculous affair we have now."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
"the world is a dangerous place place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who do not do anything about it" Albert Einstein

Love the photos !!SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army

Good pics, although those women working vice could have made more of an effort.To be born an Englishman, is to be a winner in the Lottery of Life.

I have a picture of my great great grandfather, who was a Philadelphia officer. He's wearing the long wool coat and has a bobby style helmet. It's from around 1896.The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.
At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat
