Hello, hello , hello

policeman walking the beat 1920sLet us hope the walkie cameraman who took this had his street trader license all in order!  Maybe it was just automatic reflex to take the shot and worry about it afterwards.  But whatever the case, the young Bobby shown here must have later gone and purchased the strip of photos, of which one lone survivor was added to our archive recently. I don’t think there is enough detail in the print for me to discover what force he was in (although I will rescan it as hi-res to see), and it is not marked in any way to identify the town.  Still, it’s a walkie first as far as I am concerned.
