November 2013 Caption Contest Winner


The November 2013 Caption Contest Winner is...

Congratulations to Robert K. for submitting the winning caption!


There were many witty entries, but Museum staff voted Robert’s caption our favorite. We can’t resist sharing a few of the other great submissions that made choosing one winner tough:

Jimmy showed the agents how to properly cock his hat...eliminating any need for eye or ear protection... - Eugene S.

And this is how it's done...shoot straight and don't wrinkle the suit, boys. - Kristi N.

Trying to look cool, Officer Max thought to himself "Where is that darn silhouette target?” - David J.

I`m telling you guys, I don`t need glasses. - John K.

Now here’s what we really know about this photo. It pictures a group of Texas Rangers at the new Department of Public Safety Training Facility in 1935. The Texas Rangers and Texas Highway Patrol had just merged into a single department headed by an independent Public Safety Commission. This photo shows some of the first recruits to train under the Department of Public Safety.
