Dozens of Chicago police parade past the camera in rigid formation. Their uniformity and the strong diagonal of the composition make this an entrancing Auguste and Louis Lumière short. Even the men’s mustaches bear the mark of discipline.

It was fun and nostalgic.
Requirement: every cop must sport a mustache!
Wow..the cops looked scary and mad. My guess is that they were not too worried about bashing heads in whenever they wanted!
Chicago Policemen's Parade? I can feel the graft and shakedowns coming through my computer screen more than a century later!!!
Nice to see Chicago's finest at the turn of the last century.
