When it comes to fashion history, just like Sgt. Schulz, I know Nothing. Here is a photo of the Marathon County Wis. sheriff's department which I am trying to put a date on. The badges limit the date range to several decades so I hope someone here can look at the civilian clothing and narrow down the time range. Note the saddle shoes on the younger lady. Thanks.

    Sure looks like the early or middle 1950's.

    Thanks mr.m. that was my guess too. I'll have to pay them a visit some day and see if they can date the photo.

    Neither the sheriff's department or the historical society has any photos even similar to this one so I guess the exact date will remain unknown.
