About Local Mugshots (internet mugshots)

Local Mugshots . WordPress . Com is a compendium of internet and print publications composed of jail booking photos.

More commonly referred to as Mug Shots or mugshots.

The mug shot was invented by Allan Pinkerton, a famous U.S detective in the 19’th century.  The Pinkerton National Detective Agency first began using these on wanted posters from the Wild West days. By the 1870’s the agency had the largest collection of mug shots in the United States.

A collection of mugshots is known as a Rogues Gallery.
