My grandfather Charles S. Rosencrance (on right), the city's chief of police, is with Mayor Jack Edwards and the mayor's dog. The Studebaker was custom-built for the police department in the gangster era. It seated Six comfortably and was equipped with two Thompson sub-machine guns, tow shotguns and two high-powered rifles.
