Crime and punishment
- a curiously compelling and quirky collection of historic crime photos, including unusual mugshots, corpses & crime scenes. A few favorite characters: idle and disorderly persons
; "something amazing" about Harry
; a cocky quartet
; an illicit drug trader
who "drives his own motor car and dresses well"; a subject who refused to open his eyes
; charged with conspiring to procure a miscarriage
; and guilty of unlawfully possessing cocaine
This is just one of many marvelous vintage image sets
from a historical consultant from Amsterdam - a mammoth treasure trove!
