    This woman does not look like one to be trifled with. We don't know her name, but she was a Police Matron in the 1880s, in charge of the women's portion of the jail.

    John Holgate certainly seems at ease in front of the camera. His self-assured demeanour probably comes from the fact he spent 34 years as the Chief Constable of Bolton Borough Police. This was a very long time to be in charge of a police force, even by the standards of the day. Mr. Holgate took over command of the force in 1877 and remained in charge until 1911.
