21. There Was A Mug Shot Gallery For Vamps
The "vamp" look took over in the 1920s, where women would kohl their eyes, slick on dark red lipstick, and channel a femme-fatale-like character that flirted with boys and broke their hearts once they stopped buying them drinks and furs.

Enraged with this new bold sense of self, a judge in Newark ordered the Director of Public Safety to create a “Vampire’s Gallery,” which quite literally had police arrest vamps preying on men, take their mugshots, and create a public-shaming gallery to warn the town to watch out for those particular women.
