This looks like  Charlemont Street. Looks like it was taken in England, the polis man has a tall hat like the London Bobbies wore (wear?)
Blessed are the cracked, they will let in the light.

The RUC night helmet remained in use for night patrol duty in Belfast and Londonderry/Derry up to the early 1970's.

Of course though that picture doesn't look like it was taken in the evening after dark, but I suppose that helmets might have been worn after a certain time, such as 6pm which would still be light in the summer.

I might be imagining it, but I seem to recall an elderly relative telling me that back in the day, when many people didn't have watches, they would know that it was past a certain time because of some change in the police uniform or equipment, of the foot patrol policemen, perhaps it was the change in headgear.

       

Prior to the creation of the RUC in 1922 the RIC also wore helmets for day duty, but with a spike.

Of course though that picture doesn't look like it was taken in the late evening after dark, but I suppose that helmets might have been worn after a certain time, such as 6pm which would still be light in the summer.
