Der Blog Small Town Noir dokumentiert die Geschichten von Menschen, welche zwischen 1930 und 1960 in New Castle/Pennsylvania wegen verschiedenster Delikte festgenommen wurden, anhand ihrer originalen Fahndungsfotos bzw. MugShots. Nachdem die Aufnahmen von der Polizei in Pennsylvania in den späten 90er Jahren für nicht mehr notwendig erachtet wurden und im Müll landeten, tauchten einige später bei ebay auf und weckten das Interesse von Diarmid Mogg. In der Folge sicherte sich der Mann so viele MugShots wie möglich und recherchierte dazu die Lebensgeschichten der Delinquenten in den entsprechenden lokalen Zeitungsarchiven. Einige Aufnahmen dieses interessanten Projekts findet Ihr direkt hier unten, ausführliche Informationen dazu gibt’s hier.

The blog Small Town Noir tells the stories of people who were arrested in New Castle, Pennsylvania, between 1930 and 1960. Diarmid Mogg became interested in the town and its people when he found some mugshots on eBay, and researched the stories of those people in the local newspaper archives -not just their crime, but their entire lives as well as they can be reconstructed.
