The True Face of Crime – City of shadows: Sydney police photographs 1912 – 1948 by Peter Doyle with Caleb Williams

In the late 1980s four tonnes of photographic material was rescued by the Historic Houses Trust (HHT) from a flooded Sydney warehouse. The 100,000 glass plate and acetate negatives — photos which had been taken between 1912 and 1960 officially owned by the NSW Police Service — became a closed archive of crime photos.
