HO75/1; the Police Gazette reported
and publicised crimes. This was intended to help catch criminals,
of course, but also led to greater awareness of crime and an
impression of a "crime wave". This extract from the
Gazette shows some of the crimes reported in one week in January
As you read these
sources look for:
(i) Is this crime the same as crimes committed for hundreds
(ii) Is this crime just a new opportunity for an old crime?
(iii) Is this an entirely new crime?
In Source 1, look for what was stolen, from what kind of place,
and by whom.
Put some of the examples you have
found from these Sources into your Gallery Worksheet.
