Description

A framed and glazed Illuminate Address, dated January 21st 1889 to Police Sergeant John Simpson of the former Haverfordwest Borough Police. Haverfordwest Borough Police consisted of only ever 6 policemen ... one Head Constable, one Sergeant and three Constables. It ceased to exist in 1889 when merged into the Pembrokeshire Police force. Illuminated addresses were once important components of a celebration of achievement. They were generally very ornate and often included elements of the person's history, often accompanied by a medley of images. Today the art of the illuminated address has all but vanished. They were, at their best, an art form in themselves.Measures approximately 30 inches in height. Part of the Ross Mather Police Memorabilia of Wales Collection.
