Bloomington policemen enjoying cigars, 1963.

An anonymous donor treated Bloomington’s finest to a box of cigars as a way to mark the pending closure of old city hall, located at northwest corner of East and Monroe streets, and the opening of the new (and current) one on East Olive Street. This photograph was taken February 9, with the police department scheduled to move into new quarters the weekend of March 1.
