William Barnsdale - Victorian Prisoner
By
Jennifer Carnell

This glass negative photograph was taken on 4 October 1892 by a photographer who took the official record pictures of prisoners entering prison. I was told the prison was Strangeways Prison.
Once I reversed the negative, Mr. Barnsdale's features emerged.
On 29 September 1892 Barnsdale was charged with 'attempting to upset certain trains' on the Great Northern Railway by putting wood and an iron bolt on the track at Swineshead in Lincolnshire.
He was convicted on 24 November and sentenced to three months in prison.
