    Mugshots of Australian women criminals from the 1920s

    Mugshots of Australian women criminals from the 1920s





    Australia's Justice & Police Museum has released 2,500 photographs of female criminals from the 1920s. The pictures of murderers, bigamists, bootleggers and prostitutes provide a fascnating glimpse into life in Australia in the early 20th Century. We reproduce a small selection of the photos here; to see more, visit the museum's website.
    Eugenia Falleni, alias Harry Crawford, criminal record number 499LB, 21 October 1920. Crime: murder. Eugenia Falleni spent most of her life masquerading as a man. In 1913 Falleni married a widow, Annie Birkett, whom she later murdered. The case whipped the public into a frenzy as they clamoured for details of the 'man-woman' murderer. Aged approximately 35.

    The use of the word 'criminal' in the thread title is redundant.

    It's called being tactful.
    I think this picture would have made a great avatar for Lily if DJ Pats description of her was anywhere near the mark.

    They are all as ugly as home made sin. Do Oz women really look like that?

    Ettie Sultana, criminal record number 558LB, 17 November 1922. Prostitute Ettie Sultana worked in northern New South Wales and in the Queensland cities of Brisbane and Toowoomba for most of her career. She had multiple convictions for prostitution, theft, drunkenness, swearing and vagrancy
    Bring back the anti-swearing law for all Aussies. Then deport them back to whence they came.

    Hard looking lot. They all look 20/30 years older than their stated age, and have really long, pointy noses.

    I've looked at the "full catalogue" on the Telegraph site and am saddened to see that Australian women were far better looking in those days than they are now. Show me an Australian woman and I'll show you an ugly person. True, they have some unusual ones like Elle McPherson and Kylie Minogue who are very good looking but the average Aussie woman looks like she should be burrowing in soil for earthworms.

    The blokes aren't much better either. All very fat and talk about their winning sportsmen all the time. It's a blessing that most Aussie men have been struck dumb in recent years as they never win anything these days.

    There was a bar in Pattaya called the ANZAC Bar. Horrible place with Australian men to be seen hugging the same can of lager all day long. They had to shut it down and half of it was converted into a gay lapdance place. A marked improvement, if you ask me.

    The only difference between saints and sinners is that every saint has a past while every sinner has a future.

    so why do you think they are criminals?

    Maybe because they were too ugly to sell their pussy

    Number 6 looks like Mel Gibson in drag - perhaps an ancestor?

    Underbelly razor was based on a real gang war in Sydney between two female gang bosses whose characters where accurately portrayed. As to any of the specific events in the series I can't say as I don't watch crap television including any of the underbelly shows.

    Not as glamorous are they.

    multiple convictions for soliciting and was described in police records as a common prostitute

    Is there such a thing as an uncommon prostitute?
    Where do they draw the line?

    Well, in the Eden club, the yellow line pretty well divides the room in half.

    Hope that helps.
