Elizabeth Dawson, dressmaker, arrested for pawning customers' skirts
DescriptionName: 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.? 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).

DescriptionName: Walter Firth Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 19 October 1914 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-256-Walter Firth The Shields Daily News for 21 October 1914 reports: ?RECRUITS? OFFENCES. UNLAWFULLY PAWNING MILITARY UNIFORM AT NORTH SHIELDS. Today at North Shields Walter Firth (17), soldier, stationed at the King Edward School, North Shields, was charged on remand, with unlawfully pawning with Messrs Fisher Ltd, Pawnbrokers, on the 17th two pairs of men?s drawers. Ethel Milburn, assistant with Fisher Ltd, said that at 2pm on the 17th inst. defendant came to the shop and offered the drawers in pledge. He said he was a soldier and had just bought them. Defendant gave the name of Harry Smith, Bedford Street, and witness advanced 2s 6d on the goods. Sergeant George Turner of the West Riding Regiment said the defendant was a private in the regiment and witness had two pairs of drawers, which were the property of the regiment. The drawers produced were similar to those given to defendant. Witness had examined the defendant?s kit and missed the drawers. Detective Graham said he proceeded to another pawn shop and found defendant offering two pairs of drawers in pledge. He questioned the defendant and not being satisfied with his answers arrested defendant. Firth said he did not think it very serious. He was going to bring the drawers back on pay day. The bench questioned an officer of the regiment regarding the drawers being stamped and it was stated that owing to hurried issue of the goods these had not been stamped but all the rest were. A fine of 10s and costs was imposed. A similar charge was preferred against John Smith, soldier, the offence being that he pawned the drawers with Messrs Graham and Co, Stephenson Street. The soldier, Firth, who was fined in previous case was called to give evidence and stated that Smith asked him to pledge the goods. He got 2s 3d on them. Robert Blakeburn, assistant with Graham and co, said Firth offered the drawers to pledge and witness was suspicious so he sent for the police. A fine of 2s 6d and costs was imposed". 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.
