Great photo, thanks Brian! Never saw this one before, is there any more info from the source? 1898 would have been Spanish American War period, but wouldn’t be military since most are wearing badges. Does look like law enforcement due to the badges, same hats. Uniforms are interesting, basically two types: Men with buttons have badges, those without buttons don’t have badges. The two in the front row on the left are exceptions. Where did you find this gem? Thanks.
Oops, Bryan, not Brian!
