Caption Contest Winner
The October 2016 Caption Contest Winner is...
Congratulations to Bob H. for submitting the winning caption!
There were many witty entries, but Museum staff voted Bob's caption our favorite. We can’t resist sharing a few of the other great submissions that made choosing one winner tough:
"Yes, Ma'am! It's bring your daughter to work day!" - Clif B.
"We finally found her, give me five."- Pat F.
Now here’s what we really know about this photo. Based on the police officers’ uniforms, the picture was likely taken sometime in the late 19th or early 20th century. The British “Bobby” style helmets were common during that time period, and the light color of the hats indicates that it was probably summertime. The belts also look like the style of those made by the S.A. French company in New York City which was in business from 1885-1928.
