I am often struck by old mugshots in their stark elements. I came across this mugshot recently of opium and cocaine dealer William Stanley Moore from 1926. The standing shot is a particularly gritty shot of a hardened criminal.
Moore was arrested in Australia on May 1, 1925 and described as being in possession of a large quantity of faked opium and cocaine. He also worked the wharf and was associated with drug dealers and thieves working the docks.
