RARE 1897 + 1898 New Haven CT Policemen Record Books

Offered are 2, extremely rare, New Haven, Connecticut, patrolman's record books dated 1897 and 1898. Each book is filled with individually-dated, hand-written entries documenting a day in the life of the late 19th century, city policeman.

These record books were considered official documents and were required record-keeping for every patrolman to be completed after each tour of duty and once completed for the day, were kept under secure watch by the officer in charge at the police station.

The record books were completed by Patrolman William J. Welch during November 1897 and by Patrolman George Taylor during March 1898.

Condition: the books have separated from their hard-bound covers with some loose pages, although all pages appear to be present. Entries are hand-written in pencil and are quite readable.

Fascinating and unique historical artifacts!
