About Stamp

As cities grew in size, police patrolling on foot, horseback or horse-drawn wagon could not maintain a city-wide presence nor respond quickly to emergency calls. As a result, police purchased cars, motorcycles, ambulances and patrol wagons. Commonly known as paddy wagons, the 1925 Winnipeg patrol wagon was built in two parts. Its body was made locally by Lawrie Wagon and Carriage Co. and then set on an American-built Reo Speed Wagon chassis. Reo trucks were noted for excellent engines and reliability with the rated speed of the 1½ ton model reaching 30 miles per hour.
