Percy Swallow, arrested for stealing a watch

Description

Name: Percy Swallow Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 29 November 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-117-Percy Swallow The Shields Daily News for 25 November 1907 reports: "Percy Swallow (16), who said he belonged to London, and had walked from there, was charged with being found wandering without having visible means of subsistence. Chief Constable Huish asked him if he would like to go to sea. The lad expressed his willingness, and at the request of Mr Huish he was remanded for a week. In the meantime the Chief Constable will endeavour to get him a ship." Unfortunately, the Shields Daily News for 30 November 1907 reports: "At the North Shields Police Court this morning ... Percy Swallow (16), of no fixed abode, was committed to prison for one month on a charge of having stolen a watch, valued at 10s, the property of Peter Larsen, from his room at the Tyne Sailors Home, on the 28th inst." These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

A Psychic Apparition

Description

This mysterious collection of images have been discovered within the photographic collections of Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. Reference: TWCMS -H13098-73-8 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?

Christina Haggerty, arrested for stealing money

Description

Name: Christina Haggerty Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 9 February 1916 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-266-Christina Haggerty For an image of her accomplice Sarah Dowd see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/23045026252/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily News for 9 February 1916 reports: ?ALLEGED THEFT IN BOROUGH ROAD. Today at North Shields ? Sarah Dowd (32), 8 Norfolk Street, and Christina Haggerty (36), Brannen?s Lodging House, South Shields, were charged with stealing on the 8th inst. a purse containing 5 in Treasury notes and 4s 6d in money, from a foreign seaman. Sergt. Spindler said that at 9.30pm he was on duty in the Borough Road, and the prosecutor had hold of the two women, whom he accused of robbing him of his purse, with 5 in Treasury notes, 4s 6d in money and some coins. While the prosecutor held the women, witness looked round on the ground with the help of his flash-lamp, and found the purse open, 4s 6d in silver and some coins but not the Treasury notes. Accused were remanded for eight days.? The Shields Daily News for 11 February 1916 reports: ?ALLEGED THEFT FROM THE PERSON. Sarah Dowd (32) of 8 Norfolk Street, and Christina Haggerty of Brannen?s Lodging House, South Shields, were brought up on remand at North Shields roday, charged with having stolen from the person of Dionesios Macres, a purse, valued a 6d, containing five 1 Treasury notes, 4s 6d in silver and nine coins, while in Borough Road, about 9.25pm on the 8th inst. The Chief Constable (Mr J.H. Huish) said the prosecutor had gone to sea and the charge was withdrawn.? 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.

PC Alexander stated that in company with PC Butler he saw Rice go up the stairs of the stores in a suspicious manner. Witness spoke to Ellwood who said Rice lived in the place. On going to the store, witness found the door had been forced open and he sent Butler for assistance. Inspector McQueen deposed to coming to the assistance of the officers and on going up the stairs of the house next to the store, he knocked at the door of a room occupied by Rice. After a time he got in and found the stuff in the room. He arrested Rice and Ellwood and on charging them the former said ?I took my part in it? and the latter ?I stole the things?.
