Photo: Long Beach Police Department Posts Pic For Throwback Thursday
Throwback Thursday is a delightful practice, beloved by many a Tweeter and Facebooker, in which old photos of the individual in question are posted to a social media outlet. The latest group to get in on the fun? The Long Beach Police Department.
LBPD posted a photo from a jail check in 1960 to their Twitter account yesterday, complete with the grainy black and white and the jailer in a vintage outfit (he didn't know it was vintage at the time).
Marlene Arrona, a press information officer for the LBPD, said that they try to do #TBT as often as possible.
"We often try to just show a picture randomly that we have in our archives," she said. "Something of historical value, perhaps, and that [photo we posted yesterday] was from 1960."
Arrona said that they don't have the name of the person in the photo, but that he's identified only as "a jail sergeant."
