Featured Photo - August 2004

Pictured in 1924 is Red Lion Police Officer Ed Myers astride his sidecar equipped police Harley Davidson motorcycle. The sidecar was a common accessory for police motorcycles of that era.

Notice the officer is carrying a semi-automatic pistol, carried in an open top cross draw style holster. The semi-auto pistol was unusual, as most officers of this era were carrying revolvers. Perhaps Officer Myers had to supply his own weapon and chose this in lieu of the standard revolver.
