Arcata’s Finest…

I believe that it the Arcata Hotel behind them, which makes sense as it looks like they are standing in front of the old Arcata City Hall (which was where the newish commercial building at 9th & G Streets is now).

    It looks like the Chief of Police and a Lieutenant, judging by the stars on their uniforms.
    Wonderful photo!

    Nan, the two uniformed mem\n are Police Chief Al Larson and Lt Ray Krellwitz.

    Calling them “good ol’ boys” is very offensive, both sexist, and racist. These were good, honorable men with nice families. I met them both. They were not gangsters or corrupt.
