Perhaps some of the men mentioned below are in the images above.
Can you help put names to those faces?

There are a total of 71 listings; - 62 of police and 9 sheriff.
'Listing' is not synonymous with 'individual.'
Some are listed under different spellings and years.
They likely include about five police stations: Central, Conners Point, East, South, & Union.
All are listed as residents in Superior, but may be police/sheriff in nearby locations (Duluth).
These are found in two directory years (1890-91; & 1891-92) " Duluth, St. Louis, MN Directories. "
All are listed as either " policeman " -or- " deputy sheriff " unless otherwise noted.
There are four (4) alphabetical lists by year with the two short sheriff lists last.
The city and state locations are found as " Superior, MN " in originals.
This is not presented with claims that it is accurate or complete list of the police & sheriff officers of these years,
but as a guide to researchers with hope it will help locate ancestors and family.
Good Luck!
