Des Moines Register Old Time Photos

The Des Moines Register has an online feature - Old Time Photos - which features new old photos each day.  These currently range from 1913 to the 1980's. 

The April 29, 2010 entry was a picture of justice of the peace W.T. Harrison, 79, of Cambridge, Iowa in a picture from 1945.  The picture was part of a story about the state conducting a drive to change from the justice of the peace system to a county court system.

In addition to the Old Time Photos of the Day, the Register has other collections of old photos from the Register's archive.

Thank you to Margot Eness of the Gilbert Historical Society for pointing us to the Cambridge photo.
