    Is it just me or does it seem that men used to be quite a bit more imposing? even degraded and imprisoned these guys look respectable.

    Pretty sure these are from Australian Archives, that would explain the lack of African Americans, a couple of clues, the dates are not in USA format, 12.2.21 rather than 2.21.21, letters nsw on a photo, stands for New South Wales, a State in Oz, also Central is listed on one of the photos which could well be a listing for Central Police Station, in Sydney

    I would think the reason for all of them being Skinny,Is due to the fact it was the 20s.Times were tough back then.Not much money.Today the LowerClass people have Welfare.Back then they didnt have Welfare.So you dont work you dont eat, in the City anyways.

  • Celebrity Mugshots @ Stardom!

    […] Oh my gosh…I wish sooooo bad I lived in the 20s to 40s area.  Things seemed much simpler.  But not only that, if you were arrested, you were immortalized!  These aren’t mugshots…These are art!  […]
