  • Original Here's a shot of the same nature a year prior Alphonse Bertillon was a French police officer and biometrics researcher who applied the anthropological technique of anthropometry to law enforcement creating an identification system based on physical measurements. Anthropometry was the first scientific system used by police to identify criminals. Before that time, criminals could only be identified by name or photograph. The method was eventually supplanted by fingerprinting. He is also the inventor of the mug shot. Photographing of criminals began in the 1840s only a few years after the invention of photography, but it was not until 1888 that Bertillon standardized the process. Further reading
  • actually, your "20 years prior shot" is from a year prior, Aug 7th of 1912. His birth year is 1853, and they show is age at the time as 59, and the date on the photo as well I don't see where you get 1893 from...
  • Huh, it was listed like that on Wikipedia - my mistake!
  • still cool, but yea, make the edit! my french is rudimentary, but i could instantly read all the details; i imagine actual frenchspeakingppls would go all "eat cheese and whine" if they saw that
  • Done - the Wikipedia description says 1893, but the 'date' section says 1912, like you said. facking weird, lol.
  • I dare you...to edit the Wikipedia.
  • whoa whoa whoa, not just anyone can edit that!
  • Anyone can edit, it's getting the person whose entire life revolves around moderating their Wikipedia pages to accept they are wrong that's difficult.
