Denbighshire, Wales, Archive Restores 19th Century Prisoners Photo Books

Posted by admin on Feb 16, 2012

Rare 19th Century books containing photos of habitual criminals are among archives being restored in north Wales. The pictures, taken between the 1860-90s, were used by the Denbighshire Constabulary to keep check on repeat offenders.

Other documents being preserved at Denbighshire council’s archive service include 500-year-old wills from notable Welsh family, the Mostyns. The items will go on show, some for the first time, once the work is completed.
