This photo was taken inside the County Jail on April 13, 1933. The man in the center of the photograph is Addison Throop. In 1933, Throop was Chairman of the Tax Board of Review. He was also recognized as the leading authority on Cahokia Mounds.

Standing on the right is Tony Wondolowski. Tony was known for being dapper and stylish. He lived on North 7th Street in East St. Louis. Tony could not drive so he was limited to work inside the jail only.

On the left is a deputy. We have not been able to read his name. We believe his first name is Warner. he lived in Mascoutah.

The photograph was taken by L. A. Cavagnaro from the St. Louis Star and Times.

The photograph was provided by Mr. D. A. Wodolowski of Collinsville, Illinois.
