criminal fashion show




These dames are all 'crims' as they say in Australia - criminals of the 1920's. But look at their clothes. Such style! Is it just me or are the outfits of these Antipodean women fascinating?

The photographs were taken by police officers in Sydney and are the subject of a book, City of Shadows: Sydney Police Photographs 1912 - 1948.

You can see more of these stunning photographs - and check out the men and their style - on this blog post from la boite verte.
