While following a series of stories about cars in 1907 Rockford Illinois, these two news clips seem like quite a contrast. A local "scorcher" gets a Vanderbilt racer, and the Police receive a donated horse. It just doesn't seem fair.
107 years later and we still have horse patrols in some cities.
You don't say.....
Almost every large city has a mounted patrol unit used mostly for crowd control and park patrol
