London Gypsies photographed by John Thomson in 1877 as part of a series entitled 'Street Life in London.' This photograph shows a friendly group gathered around a caravan belonging to one William Hampton. The woman seated on the steps, Mary Pradd, was murdered a few weeks after the photograph was taken.
Two unidentified policemen. (1893-94) St. Louisans recently voted to return control of the police department to the city, thus ending 151 years of state oversight. When the Civil War started, Missouri governor Claiborne Jackson wanted control of the police in the hands of Confederate sympathizers like himself. So he decreed that the police would be overseen by a board of five commissioners, consisting of the St. Louis mayor and four of the governor’s appointees. ©Missouri History Museum
