      Keith, we have that photo of Lawton's First Police Force in the
      exhibit. The copy I used is from the Arthur Lawrence Collection (87-
      P5) and the photo number is 90. I'm adding it to the Don Blanding
      gallery on Photopoint for everyone to see. The photo was done by the
      Wade Studio, and there are probably quite a few copies made, at least
      around this neck of the woods ! Kinda neat - Hugh Ross was an
      important man around town in 1901 ! {:-Deb (I've listed the names
      in the space available)
