Title: 1920's gangsters' mugshots.

Appart from the coolness of these guys, it seems to me that they wear bigger hats than the actors in OUATIA.

Ok, it turns out that they're Australian criminals.

I'm pretty sure a similar archive exists of New York criminals.

In fact, someone here (was it you?) posted the link to New York City photos that were recently released, I think there were some mug shots there; probably somewhere here on the OUATIA board


UPDATE: Here it is; it was you  ;)

Oh yeah I forgot about that. I came very close to repost the Manhattan Bridge's pic sooner today. Let's say it's not my day :)

those two buildings on the side of the street on Washington St. next to the Manhattan Bridge - I wonder if those buildings are still there today? http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=8376.msg151284#msg151284

Some comparison photos of Manhattan bridge:

For those who don't know the area, the buildings on the left are now a park and those on the right have been demolished and replaced by a one storey brick building owned by the Dept of Environmental.

Street view on Google is good in these locations:
