Acme Metropolitan Whistle

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.

In tests on Clapham Common, the Metropolitan proves clearly audible over a mile away, and is quickly adopted by police and fire departments throughout Britain.

(“Follow me, lads!”)
