is it a mugshot or are we having a portrait shoot ?

i love seeing old images from years ago being restored and showed to the public but this is just funny.

“Australian inmates of all kinds. Whores, gangsters, fraudsters, and crooks of every kind circa 1920.”

i stumbled upon this and it just made me laugh. it’s not the subject of the photograph but the way they were portrait.  they just look like normal portrait shots, some of them group shots with 2 people in the photograph. very unusual for mugshot isnt it?
