Vintage Mugshots from the 1920s [30 Photos]
In 1990 the Historic Houses Trust rescued a remarkable collection of NSW Police forensic photographs from a flooded warehouse in Lidcombe. Created between 1912 and 1964, the archive contains approximately 130,000 glass plate negatives depicting crime scenes, police activities, forensic evidence and mug shots and may be the biggest police photography collection in the southern hemisphere. The Historic Houses Trust has the job of conserving, repackaging, digitising, researching and cataloguing the archives contents, for which original record systems have been lost.

Major exhibitions featuring the archive have travelled widely, including Crime Scene and Femme Fatale and two books have been produced City of Shadows and Crooks Like Us by Peter Doyle. Ongoing discoveries from the archive are regularly displayed within a dedicated in the Archive Gallery at the Justice & Police Museum. The current exhibition is Collision: Misadventure by Motorcar which depicts car crashes and traffic accidents between 1920 and 1960 as well as the changing streets of Sydney, developments in automobiles and the increasing involvement of police in traffic management

I loved the guy who wouldn't open his eyes...I wonder why?

I never give RED karma, only GREEN for great posters. If you give me red or green please leave your name, I like to say thank you...

Goodbye sweet friend, we miss you.

Do you realize that in about forty years, we'll have millions of old ladies and old men running around with tattoos and piercings? Ew...

They had mostly the same identical three piece suit - and I think all had the exact same boots on.
