New York’s mounted police go out on patrol

I don’t know where this postcard image was taken, but it shows us a squad of mounted police ready to hit the streets and keep the peace.


It’s dated 1905, about when automobiles are beginning to drastically change street traffic and police patrolling. [MCNY photo gallery]

    Obviously could be anywhere. But there was an old stable on the north side of West 42nd (far west), that was replaced with a new one, then relocated to another location. This could be outside the old one.

    Looks very West 42nd at the turn of the century, yes!
