1883. London Metropolitan Police sponsor a contest for ways to replace cumbersome wooden rattles used by bobbies.
The prize is won by the whistle you see here, Mr. J. Hudson’s renowned Acme Metropolitan.
Acme Metropolitan Whistle (No. 2242). Still standard issue to London bobbies, guaranteed to pierce pea-soup fog. Ingenious one-piece, hands-free design. Nickel-plated (silver) brass. A wonderful gift.
A wonderful gift.
