The Shields Daily News for 10 November 1902 reveals that:

"At North Shields to-day, two young boys named David Lloyd (15) and George Burn (14) were charged with stealing on the 8th inst. from a wash-house in Prudhoe Street brushes and a box worth 3s, the property of Peter Johnson. Chief Constable Huish stated that he desired the lads to be remanded for eight days. Lloyd came from Hull. The remand was granted".

These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1).

This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

    I love the detail in the photos. Their clothing has so much to it. The expressions too - he seems a little cheeky despite being caught..
