One of the most chilling items held by Aberdeen City & Aberdeenshire Archives is an album of crime scene images, most of which were taken during the 1930s. Photography has been a useful tool in the police's armoury almost since the invention of the camera with the resulting images often playing a crucial role in helping to secure a conviction. They may also inadvertently capture a wealth of detail that make them fascinating social documents for modern day viewers.

Part of the Granite Noir crime writing festival, this free exhibition, created by writer and researcher Diarmid Mogg, displays a selection of crime scene photographs from the Grampian Police Archive held by Aberdeen City & Aberdeenshire Archives. They tell the fascinating stories associated with the cases ranging from burglary and petty theft through to murder.
