Vintage West Virginia: Walkie-talkies

Charleston Police Department Patrolman Pat Toney uses his new walkie-talkie radio for instant communication to police headquarters in any situation. At the end of 1967, eight downtown patrolmen were equipped with the new radios, Chief Dallas Bias said. Also of note is the Kearse Theater in the background, which places this photo looking north on Summers Street. Photo by Ray Wheeler.
