A Spiritual Committee

Description

This mysterious collection of images have been discovered within the photographic collections of Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. Reference: TWCMS -H13098-73-3 The lantern slides are from a series titled 'Psychic Photography From A New Angle' and feature eerie images of the supposedly paranormal and unknown forces caught on camera. Very little is known of the origins of this collection. The slides were designed to accompany a lecture by a Mr C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield. Mr MacCarthy produced the images under test conditions in 1934 in front of an invited committee at 76 Clarkehouse Road, Sheffield. He states the intention was to ?demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography? to this committee. Mr MacCarthy states his three reasons for this demonstration. 1.To prove the possibility of Fake under test conditions. 2.To show you cannot be too critical of such phenomena. 3.To indicate the increasing scope for fraud with the probability of genuine spirit photography. Mr MacCarthy further guarantees ?in the sum of five pounds, payable to any charitable institution, that no collusion exists, or has existed between myself and any other party in connection with this demonstration.? Little is currently known of the Psychic demonstration. Who sat on the invited committee? Who was Mr MacCarthy? Why was he investigating Psychic Photography? Can you help us with this information?

Name: Mary A. Marr Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 6 June 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-41-Mary A Marr For an image of her daughter Alice Maud Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16935100722/in/album-72157.... For an image of her son Charles Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/16567211557/in/album-72157.... For an image of her daughter Mary Ellen Marr see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/17084333602/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 6 June 1906 reports: "THEFT OF A SAILOR'S BAG AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields Police Court today Charles Marr, Mary Ann Marr, Mary Ellen Marr and Chas. Marr were charged with being concerned together in stealing a sailor's bag of clothing etc, valued at £2, the property of John Partis Gibson, a seaman. Supt. Jamieson of the BTP prosecuted. The prosecutor said that on the 7th May he joined the s.s. Camelia, which was then lying at the Commissioners? Staithes. He was proceeding to the docks with his bag and when passing the North Shields Railway Station the defendant Chas. Marr came up to him and offered to carry his bag for 1d. He said he would give him 3d if he carried it to the docks and he agreed to do so. He gave him the bag and told him he was going to make a purchase. On reaching his vessel he failed to see the boy and gave information to the police. He went to sea the same day and had just returned. Two pawnbrokers? assistants spoke to receiving a portion of the stolen clothing from two of the female defendants. Sub-Inspector Leitch said that on the 8th May, from information received, he made enquiries and proceeded to the North Shields Railway Station, where he found the boy Marr and questioned him. He told witness he took the bag home, being unable to find the man who had engaged him at the dock. He went to the house occupied by the defendants and spoke to Mrs Marr with regard to the bag. She told him it was in the cupboard. He took possession of it and found that it contained only a small portion of the stolen clothing. He mentioned this circumstance to her and she said it was just the same as it was when it was brought in the previous day and that it had not been touched. He searched the house and found a portion of the property and he recovered the remainder from the pawnbrokers. He added that the boy told the truth at once and had given him every assistance in recovering the property, while the mother had given him a great deal of trouble. Formally charged, the mother, Mary Ann Marr, said it would not have happened had it not been for need. Charles, who made his 13th appearance, was given the option of a fine, he having assisted the police, and he was mulcted in 1s without costs. Marry Ann Marr, whom the magistrates considered was the chief instigator in the theft, was committed to prison for 14 days, while Mary Ellen Marr was sentenced to 7 days imprisonment. Because of her youth, Alice Marr was discharged." The Shields Daily News for 24 January 1907 reports: "THEFT OF DOOR MATS. MOTHER AND DAUGHTERS SENT TO PRISON. At North Shields Police Court today Mary Ellen Marr (21), Alice Maud Marr (17), sisters, and Mary Ann Marr (44), their mother, were charged with having stolen an indiarubber door mat, valued at £1 4s, the property of Joseph Ostens, from the doorway of his house, 34 Grosvenor Place, on the 17th inst., or with having received the same, well knowing it to have been stolen. They were further charged with having stolen a similar mat, valued at £1 3s, from the doorway of No. 32 Grosvenor Place, on the 17th inst., the property of John R Sutherland. There was a third charge against Mary Ellen and Alice Maud of having stolen on the 21st ult., from the porch of Percy Park House, Grand Parade, Tynemouth, an indiarubber mat, valued at £1 10s, the property of Mr A. O. Carr, JP. In the first case, Detective Sergeant Hall said that on the 18th inst. he arrested the accused at their residence in Church Way. He found the mat produced cut to pieces in the kitchen. Afterwards it was identified by the prosecutor as his property. In the other cases, evidence was given to the effect that the two other mats had been similarly treated, and that one of them had been disposed of at a marine store dealer's for 3s 6d. Previous convictions against the accused were put in by the Chief Constable (Mr J. H. Huish) and the magistrates committed the mother to prison for 14 days on each of the two charges preferred against her and sent the daughters to gaol for 14 days on each of the three charges preferred against them."

Evidence of the arrest having been given the accused was formally charged and pleaded not guilty. He said the flour was taken by his companion and it was his intention to return it. Prisoner was also charged with indecent conduct in the presence of two young women in Dene Street last night. Evidence having been given, the accused emphatically denied this charge also. There was a third charge against the accused of having indecently assaulted a young girl in Lawson Street. The Chief Constable reduced the charge to one of common assault. Prisoner said he was not guilty. The magistrates found him guilty upon them all and committed him to 7 days for the theft, six weeks on the second charge and six weeks for the assault, one to follow the other. The Chairman (Lieut.-Col.

Elizabeth Dawson, dressmaker, arrested for pawning customers' skirts

Description

Name: Elizabeth Dawson Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 20 June 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-45-Elizabeth Dawson The Shields Daily News for 21 June 1907 reports: ?A DRESSMAKER?S DOWNFALL. At the North Shields Police Court today Elizabeth Dawson (52), described as a widow, of Sidney Street, was charged with being the bailee of two skirts, the property of Mrs Harrison of Bamborough Terrace and Mrs Dickinson of Whitley, and did convert them to her own use. It was explained in evidence that Mrs Harrison and Mrs Dickinson gave the accused, who is a dressmaker, the two skirts to alter. Instead of doing this, she pledged them at Messrs Findlay Mitchell and Co.?s pawnshop in Church Street. She told the assistant at that place of business that the skirts were her own property, and she being an old customer, he believed her statement and took them in, advancing 2s 6d upon each. Accused said that she was forced to do as she had because her landlady was pressing her for payment. The Bench gave her another chance, just binding her over to be of good behaviour for six months in the sum of £1. They thought drink had been the cause of her downfall and advised her to sign the pledge. She undertook to do so.? Sadly this wasn?t to be her last brush with the law. The Shields Daily News for 2 November 1907 reports: ?Elizabeth Dawson (52), widow, 11 Sidney Street, drunk and incapable in Church Way; 5s and costs.?

Robert Jackson, hawker, arrested for stealing money

Description

Name: Robert Jackson Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 2 July 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-260-Robert Jackson The Shields Daily News for 5 July 1915 reports: ?THEFT OF £5. NEWCASTLE MAN GETS SIX MONTHS HARD LABOUR AT NORTH SHIELDS. Robert Jackson (31) a hawker, of 2 Carlisle Street, Newcastle, was charged at North Shields today, with having stolen, on the 1st inst., £5, the property of John Mackie, while in the Golden Fleece Inn, New Quay. John Mackie, a naval stoker, said that at 7.15pm on the 1st inst. he was in the Golden Fleece Inn, New Quay, and had some words with another man. Witness said the man was a German, and he (witness) would give him £5 if he could prove that he was an Englishman, Scotchman or an Irishman. He laid the £5 on the counter and defendant came across and picked it up. John W. Herd said he was in the bar at the time and he told the defendant to give the prosecutor his money back. Defendant said ?There is half a sovereign: that?s all I?ve got?. Defendant denied this. Sergt. Askew stated that he arrested defendant shortly after 7.15 on that night. When charging him the sergeant was suspicious and asked defendant what he had in his mouth. Defendant opened his mouth and took out a sovereign. Jackson then asked if he could speak to the man who was charging him. He was under the influence of drink at the time. When charged the next day, defendant denied having stolen the money. Defendant pleaded not guilty and said the money he put in his mouth was his own. He put it there because it looked suspicious. Chief Constable Huish said that in 1913 defendant was committed for 18 months for assault and robbery and in February this year he was again committed for three months. Defendant asked for a chance and he would join the army, but he was committed to prison for six months with hard labour.? These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

George Walker, soldier, arrested for cashing a forged cheque

Description

Name: George Walker Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 15 March 1916 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-264-George Walker The Shields Daily News for 20 March 1916 reports: ?FORGING CHEQUES. YOUNG SOLDIERS CHARGED AT NORTH SHIELDS. At North Shields today ? Harold Weston Cummings (17), a soldier, of 33 Hanover Gardens, Kensington Oval, London, SE, was brought up on remand, charged with having feloniously forged a bank cheque for the sum of £4 15s on or about Feb. 25th. Geo. Ernest Walker (17), a soldier of Freer Street, Walsall, was charged with cashing the cheque on the 25th Feb. They were further charged with similar offences on the 25th Feb. Mr F. Lambert defended both defendants. James Hamilton Johns, Second Lieutenant in the South Staffordshire Regiment, said Cummings was attached to the same regiment at Earsdon. The cheque produced signed ?J.H. Johns? was not out of his book and it was not his signature. Witness never asked the defendants to sign cheques on his behalf. Walker was also billeted at Earsdon. James N. Wilson, cashier at Lloyd?s Bank, Howard Street, North Shields, said that between 10 and 12.30 on the 25th Feb. Walker came to the bank and asked to cash the cheque produced. Witness asked where he came from and he said Shiremoor and he cashed it. The cheque was sent in the usual way and it was returned as the signature had been forged. The cheque was from a quartermaster?s book, which had been lost or stolen at Plymouth. Detective-Sergeant Hall said that on the 11th inst. he went to Earsdon and arrested Cummings and when cautioned he replied ?I have nothing to say?. On the way to North Shields he said: ?I did not attempt to alter the handwriting in any way. I have had the cheque book about a year and have never attempted to use it?. Later, witness saw Walker in the custody of the Newcastle police and when cautioned, he replied ?I have nothing to say?. Mr Lambert stated that the other charge was of a precisely similar character and he did not think it necessary to go into it. There could not be any doubt that the charges were serious ones but he suggested that, having regard to all the circumstances, it could be settled to the satisfaction of the police and the bankers. The defendants were both 17 years of age, and young as they were they had already served in the army for four years. Walker?s father had been 26 years in the army and was now in France. The police might be prepared to allow the more serious charge to be reduced to one of false pretences and the money would be refunded by the officers of the regiment. Chief Constable said the defendants had cashed three more cheques at Whitley and attempted to cash one at Newcastle. The people on these cases had refused to prosecute. Capt. Anderson gave the defendants good characters. Chief Constable Huish said he had no objection to the cases being reduced. The second case was not proceeded with and Cummings was charged with having received the money by false pretences and Walker with aiding and abetting. Both men pleaded guilty. The Chairman said the defendants would be bound over for twelve months and they were greatly indebted to their solicitor and officers." These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest.
