Pat Garrett, James Brent and John W Poe, sheriffs of Lincoln County, c1880-1882 (1954)

Pat Garrett, James Brent and John W Poe, sheriffs of Lincoln County, c1880-1882 (1954). Lincoln County in New Mexico was the scene in 1877-1881 of a violent conflict between cattle ranchers and merchants in which the outlaw and gunman Billy the Kid was a prominent participant. Pat Garrett (left) was elected sheriff of Lincoln County in 1880 and charged with tracking down and arresting the Kid, which he succeeded in doing after a shootout. Billy escaped from custody and in 1882 was shot and killed by Garrett in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Poe (right), who had been Garrett's deputy, succeded him as sheriff in 1882 and Brent in turn was elected to the post in 1885.

Standoff on Sidney Street, Stepney, London, 3rd January 1911 (1937).Artist: Central Press

Standoff on Sidney Street, Stepney, London, 3rd January 1911 (1937). The Sidney Street siege occurred after a gang of heavily armed Latvian burglars shot five police officers who attempted to arrest them as they attempted to break into a jeweller's shop. Four of the policemen died. Three members of the gang were cornered at 100 Sidney Street and surrounded by the police. A gunfight ensued, but the police had inferior weapons and reinforcements in the form of soldiers from the Scots Guards were called in by order of Home Secretary Winston Churchill, who arrived to observe the scene himself. After six hours of fighting, the building caught fire and Churchill controversially gave the order that the Fire Brigade take no action. Two of the burglars bodies were discovered in the burned out building but no trace of the third was ever found.
