    I love this site. It contains all sorts of treasures. It's my first port of call these days when researching criminal types. I'm especially chuffed that my maternal grandad appears on there with a 'life archive'.

    If you're nearby, this exhibition at the LMA involving the DP is worth a look:

    It's a fairly small exhibition, but it contains some great images of Coldbath Fields prison where old Tom Fogarty was banged up as a boy. The site of the prison, now a huge Post Office depot, is just a few minutes walk away from the LMA.
