Who were they?

Post  Sean on Sat 27 Mar 2010, 6:00 pm

This photo is captioned as the Dry agents of New Jersey, circa 1927.
Does anyone have any further information, especially about the uniform?

I may be wrong, but they look like they may be New Jersey State Police, organized by WWI colonel Norman Schwatzkopf, father and namesake of the coalition commander in the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

I thought the same but then I realized that they lacked the distinctive "NJ"/"SP" collar patches and also NJSP troopers don't wear breast badges.

Being a 1927 photo, the collar patches may have come later, along with abolishing the breast badge.
