The picture in the profile was the only picture of Richard K. Norris. The picture showed three men: Norris (alderman), Walter Anderson (police chief), and William B. Wolton (health inspector). While the man with the badge on his hat was obviously Walter Anderson, I wasn't sure which of the other two was Norris, so I assumed he was the one with the military-style hat, because I couldn't imagine a health inspector wearing any sort of uniformed hat.
