San Francisco Police Photographer, G.W. Blum
G.W. Blum was the S.F.P.D. photographer. Each time a new Chief of Police took office in San Francisco, Officer Blum would create a large framed "City Marshal's and Chief's of Police" group photo to hang in the Chief's office. The picture above was Blum's masterpiece in 1911 and is signed by him. It measures four feet wide and just over three feet tall. Hand painted design surrounds each individual photo.
