A Rogues' Gallery: Victorian Prisoners in Gloucester Gaol.


This book, containing 160 pages, looks at the photographs taken of some Victorian prisoners held on remand in Gloucester Gaol at certain times between 1871 and 1906. It looks at the different styles of dress, the various groups of prisoners, from the children to the elderly, and where they originated, which could be anywhere in the world! Background research using extensive archive material into some of the characters in the mugshots has been included as has a database recording all the details of those recorded in the three photo albums, whether a photograph was included of them or not.

The book demonstrates that a wide variety of people spent time at Her Majesty's pleasure and presents a revealing picture of Victorian justice and the sentences that the inmates endured. Originally £14.99, this book is now on offer at £12.00.
