City of Shadows

Inner City Crime & Mayhem 1912-1948

The City of Shadows exhibition explores the Justice and Police Museum’s extraordinary and compelling collection of police forensic photography dating from 1912-1948. Meet thieves, breakers, receivers, magsmen, spielers, urgers, gingerers, false pretenders, hotel barbers, shoplifters, dope users, makers of false oaths and the occasional murderer.

This exhibition was first opened in 2008. Since then, information from the public and relatives of the criminals have come to light, creating compelling stories to go alongside these old photographs.

Open weekends only.
