Here are some more great photos from the collection of the Persinko family. This is an MPD squad car in the early 1950’s. Notice the tank in the background? According to Chris Gluch This photo was taken in front of the old Police Headquarters across from the Manville Diner (thanks Chris!). Love the old Aamaco station in the back with the old school gas pumps. This is so classic. We also have an early 50’s photo of Andrew Persinko in the old Police Headquarters. I couldn’t ask for better quality photos. Thanks so much Drew. these are great.

  1. THAT TANK USED TO SIT BY THE BANK OF AMERICA BACK IN THE DAY, SO THAT PHOTO WAS TAKING IN FRONT OF THE OLD POLICE HQ FACING THE MANVILLE DINER.

      • DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE NAME OF THE RED DOOR TAVERN WAS BEFORE IT BECAME THE RED DOOR

    • To narrow down the time line a little I can identify that patrol car as a 1952 Chevy. As far as the curb side gas station is concerned the Amoco sign is a revelation. My earliest memory of that place was a Crown station.

  2. Chris – your grandfather (Ted) and my father were pretty good friends. As a kid, I remember being at your grandfathers house a few time.

  3. Notice the old manual switchboard, and the rolodex to the left to the switchboard. In the old days, when a call came in, the desk officer would have to connect the call manually.
