Photographs taken under Habitual Criminals Act, 1869

Post by Sduddy » Fri Jun 04, 2021 10:50 am

Clare Journal, Mon 23 May 1870:
Photographs have been taken of all the prisoners under sentence in Ennis Jail, with the view of carrying out the provisions of the Habitual Criminals’ Act.
I wonder if these photographs have survived.
