Mugshots on display of 1880s Scots crooks

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Mugshots of Scots criminals from the 1880s are set to go on display for the first time - including a thief who was imprisoned for stealing a book of Burns' poetry.

The black-and-white snaps were taken just before criminals banged up at the HM General Prison in Perth were released from custody.

More than 900 photographs were taken, with around a third of them women, to help police track ex-cons as they moved around Scotland.
