    The granddaughter of officer Stokes sent me a scanned image of a print she had. I cleaned up a lot of wear & tear marks, removed a few branches and window reflections. My dad is third from the left. He served with the Porterdale Police Force for 29 years, as chief for his last nine years on the force. I'm guessing the photo was taken sometime in the mid 1950's.

    I think its wonderful that you have this photo. We can never forget where we came from, and who we came from. Without things like this, all will be forgotten some day. This keeps it all alive.

    As a History major and soon to be History teacher, I really enjoy old photos like this one. Great photo.

    Wow great shot and great job fixing it up. Have you thought about playing with the levels, curves and channels a bit to fix the exposure?

    I like old photos to bring us that feeling, and reminds us of the past, think of where we come from, these are really good things.
