Vintage Forensic Photography

We're all for pretty and colourful pics of scantily clad, underfed models and shots of brooding, hairy-faced hipsters adorned in the latest season of over-priced garb. But give us gritty and unflinching stills of the world's dark and festering underbelly and we're happier than a corpse in a morgue. 

Most of the shots contained in the Justice and Police Museum's collection of vintage forensic photography is way too hardcore to post, but we managed to dig up a collection that delivers enough voyeuristic jollies without requiring a complimentary sick bag. 

Shot between 1910 and 1960, the stark and haunting images of old school crime scenes, mugshots and missing persons tell grim tales of past lives lost. The sepia toned shots are not only creepy as hell but taken out of context are actually really good photos. But still creepy as hell.

It makes me feel creepy that I looked at the pictures and automatically said "Ooooh! Nice vintage furniture!". I have no soul.

As long as it wasn't the abortion room, I think you're safe Em-T.

Here's hoping Picture 13 is not said abortion room. Check out those couches!
