PORTRAIT OF 4 DETECTIVES AND A UNIFORMED OFFICER STANDING IN FRONT OF A POLICE STATION (1930’S)

police

police 1 This vintage photograph features five policemen posing in front of the entrance to an unknown French city’s police department. Four of the men are dressed in plain clothes. They are likely detectives. A uniformed officer stands behind the plainclothesmen. None of these men are rookies. They look hardened and not the type of men you would want to enrage. Note that three of the men have pens in their pockets. The pens are easy to reach for writing citations. The signs on the wall of the building appear to say “Gardiens” (Police) and “Commissariat” (Department). This photograph appears to have been taken in the 1930’s. The photo measures about 5″ x 7″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. In fact, the two signs read “Gardiens de la paix” and “Commissariat de police”.
