Cell 7

How's this for detective's kit?
Paul Beaken

Get up close and personal with some of the equipment that your favourite on screen policeman and detectives would have been familiar with in the 1950s and early1960s.

Cell Seven features items of equipment used by detectives in the 1950s, before Scenes of Crime Officers were appointed. SOCOs or the more modernĀ  CSI officers now attend the scene and collect any forensic samples that might help identify those involved. The plate camera, used to take photographs of persons charged with an offence was in use in John Street Police Station until the late seventies when it was replaced with a fixed focus 35mm camera securely fitted to a table.

Photograph and pose with identikit and finger printing materials.
