NYPD crime photos of yesteryears to be released to the public ...

MICHAEL ZHANG, PETAPIXEL:

"Thousands of historical crime scene photographs shot by the New York Police Department will soon be digitized and released for the public to see ...  the prints will be scanned starting in July 2015 and will be made available for viewing shortly afterward through the Municipal Archives Online Gallery."

Morbid, in a sense, but this is surely a fascinating visual record.
