Albumen print of a group of 12 policemen in full uniform, about 1870. Thought to be Helston Borough Police. Seven are standing in the back row, three are sitting on chairs in the front row with the most senior member of the group in the centre, a further two are seated on the ground. The gentleman in the centre is possibly Mr Grant, who went on to become the first Inspector of Cornwall County Constabulary at Helston.
