A search through the archives has turned up this historical photo of Patrolman Murphy of the Washington State Patrol circa the 1940s. It's interesting to see how much the uniforms have changed over the years (not to mention the cars). This photo was taken between 60 and  70 years ago, but there are probably people out there who might have known Patrolman Murphy. Anyone have memories to share?
