People with guns collection # 89

Los Angeles -- WHO SAID "WEAKER SEX" -- Whenever anyone mentions burglars to Mabel Dee Stevens, she simply laughs with unmitigated delight, and waves her gun. For Mrs. Stevens is the only woman in the Los Angeles Police Department ever to qualify in marksmanship with a .45 caliber pistol. She scored a total of 303 points recently at the Elysian Park range, and as a result will receive $2 a month extra pay. 11/24/33

The Old Republic (In Living Color)

Watching motorcycle races, Gardena Calif. November 1951

I recently purchased a new flatbed scanner that allows me to scan slides, negatives, transparencies etc. I bought it because I have bunches of old color 35mm slides that I wanted to save digitally. A plus side for my readers is that there is now a new photo series for your enjoyment. With this post I begin The Old Republic, photos of America when she shined at her brightest.
