This is another of those stray photos that turned up recently while sorting a folder of miscellaneous items in the Lucas County Historical Society collection.
Dated December, 1958, and labeled "Lucas County employees," it is a snapshot taken in front of the courthouse Christmas tree in the first-floor hall of the courthouse, looking east from the base of the staircase leading to the second floor. Come December, that will have been 58 years ago.
