In 1966, in the era of big, boxy cameras with flashbulbs, the Columbus Division of Police had a four-person photography team.

The photographers were responsible for taking pictures of crime scenes in color and in black and white, developing film, printing pictures of hundreds of arrested persons and producing training slides and movies.

The large copying camera in the foreground was used to record the details of a questioned document or piece of evidence.
