Photography: New Castle Mugs
Not a lot to be said about these, other then they’re a series of mugshots taken in New Castle, PA in the 1940’s. Mostly petty crime or drunk driving there are a few that are harder to explain – Edward Weavers- “Complaint of Wife”, Frank Sodas – “Bastardy” (?) The photos themselves are wonderful – bad lighting, oddly posed – people in distress – you could never recapture these . It’s also a nice glimpse in styles of the 40’s. Check out Joe Relo’s hair, Ed Weavers sport coat and Louis DeLuria’s specs.
