Mugshot of Gilbert Burleigh and Joseph Delaney, 27th August 1920

Special Photograph no. 169. Gilbert Burleigh on the left is identified as a 'hotel barber', and Delaney's picture is labelled 'false pretences & conspiracy'. A companion photograph makes it clear that in fact Delaney was the hotel barber- meaning one who books into a hotel, boarding house or residential and robs (or 'snips') fellow patrons, usually in the dead of night. In this instance Delaney was charged with stealing a cigarette case, a hairbrush, aclock and a quantity of clothing from a dwelling-house. A month later he was further charged 'being about to abscond from bail'. He is described as 'a fireman and a returned soldier'. Gilbert Burleigh doesn't appear at all in thepolice Gazette in 1920, but is listed in the Photo Supplement of 1928, eight years later as being wanted on warrant.

Titled "Mug shot of Gilbert Burleigh and Joseph Delaney, 27 August 1920, possibly Central Police Station, Sydney."
