EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative photograph, taken in the 1990s, two dedicated police officers, one male and one female, are seen standing and speaking on the pavement of a London street. The woman, a WPC (Women Police Constable), wears the reinforced bowler hat that was introduced for women officers in 1985, adding an extra layer of protection to their uniforms. The man, a policeman, completes the scene with his traditional peaked cap and single-breasted uniform. The building behind them, Benson Court, is a residential structure located in the N19 area of London, adding a sense of community and familiarity to the image. The officers, with their serious expressions turned towards each other, convey a sense of camaraderie and dedication to their duty. The 1990s was a time of significant change for women in employment, and the police force was no exception. The presence of the WPC in this photograph is a testament to the progress made towards gender equality in the workplace. The image captures a moment in time when the traditional roles of male and female officers began to blur, with both genders working side by side, protecting and serving their community. The photograph also showcases the iconic uniforms of the Metropolitan Police, with their distinctive caps, buttons, and cravats. Cars can be seen parked on the street, adding to the bustling urban scene. The officers' serious demeanor contrasts with the casual presence of the cars, highlighting the importance of their duty in maintaining law and order. Overall, this photograph is a snapshot of a bygone era, capturing the essence of London life in the 1990s and the evolving role of women in the police force.
