Cover Mug Shots

The book’s cover features three Salford scuttlers of the 1890s: William Henry Brooks (centre); James Brown (left) and John Wallace, alias McInerney (right). They were photographed by police in Rochdale in 1894, after they were caught stealing a shawl from a washing line. The mug-shots were discovered in the collection of the Greater Manchester Police Museum.
