Jazz-age villains of Australia

Here's a collection of photos from Sydney, Australia's Justice & Police Museum exhibition Crooks. These pictures were taken by Australian police in the 1920s, capturing "individuals they thought were, or were likely to become, professional criminals." They're collected in a high-quality photography book called Crooks Like Us, which non-Australians can also get a pretty good deal on at Amazon. The photos themselves are striking and their subjects run the gamut from properly scary villains to haunted and troubled souls.
