  1. Have you looked at the hats! Sargents and constables in ” Pointed hats” Senior Officers, Inspectors or above in Top Hats and in the front row Detectives? in plain clothes and “Derby Hats”

  2. Thanks for the info Chris – we wern’t sure about the front row, so that’s interesting.

  3. The third man from the left on the bottom row is my ancestor Detective Inspector Denham. I have a photocopy of a collection of 13 miniature photographs of senior men in the York Police Force, most with names. I think that it either came from a request that I sent to the York City Archives or York Castle Museum. I am not sure of the year that it was taken.
