From the First Mate's Photo Album - Counts

TSGS President Don Counts sent this photo for our blog.  John Counts is my Grandpa and served on the Evansville Traffic Squad.  I saw the following article "Evansville Police Department 150th Anniversary"
http://westside.14news.com/news/news/61534-epd-seeking-old-photos-memorabilia and called Brad Hill.  He came by and borrowed the picture.  He couldn't find a scanner big enough then found a person with a hand held scanner that worked.

From Left to Right: Gilbert Underdown, John Counts, Norman Clark, Chris Humphreys, George Gamble, William Hudson, John Hamrush, William Schulte, Walter Fisher, Charles Ohning, Clyde Roebling, Ralph Plummer and William S Perrett

My Grandpa is the 2nd from the left on his motor cycle.  My Dad was born in 1920 and he was a policeman when Dad was little so this is probably in the 1920s.

Brad and the police department were impressed and they are going to make this a wallpaper to go in the entrance to the police department.

Would love to see the wall in the police department when they put that up - wow - very nice!
