Illustration from German patent 215812, which was filed 25 December 1908.  It shows a gun with all the basic characteristics of the Model 1910 Side Latch.  The patent was for a method of retaining the barrel pin with two locking lugs just behind the front plate.  This method was ultimately not used on production pistols.
