1939 World’s Fair Police Motorcycle with Sidecar

The New York Public Library has an awesome collection of digitized images. I found this one while poking around. A 1939 World’s Fair Police Officer with motorcycle and sidecar.

I would love to know what type of motorcycle it is. If anyone has any information, please let me know!

Photo Note Reads:
“An Officer is pictured standing beside one the Motorcycles used for messenger service by the New York World’s Fair 1939. He is wearing the official uniform of the exposition police force, consisting of oxford gray coat, tan breeches, trooper’s hat, tan shirt and blue tie, leather boots and Sam Browne belt. The letters on the collar will be NYWF, giving him his official status.”
