Almost as good as a visit from Tim Noah....almost.
A co-worker was reading the paper this afternoon and commented on what a horrible name Beulah was (she was looking at the caption on a photo from 1940). Moments after I agreed with her, I remembered another Beulah.
When I was a kid at Stanley Elementary (circa 1988-1993), Officer Mike would bring Harvey and Beulah, the talking motorcycles, to our school during assemblies. Does anyone else remember Harvey and Beulah? Are they still around? I tried searching the Tacoma Police Department website without any luck.

|In North Dakota, there is a Harvey Motorcycle Insurance Company and a Beulah Motorcycle Insurance Company.
I guess that doesn't help much, does it?
It seems a worthy search, so I'll be on the alert.

|I remember Harvey...he came to the grade schools in the '70s.|

|Somewhere I have a photo of my younger daughter seated on Harvey at the Puyallup Fair, circa 1983 or so. Harvey is indeed remembered. I do not, however, recall Beulah.|
I'm Mandi. I've lived in the Tacoma area my whole life and I love it. I'm not a very prolific blogger but I do what I can.
