Mug Shots of Fresno Transvestites (1963)

What if your mugshot photo is the best portrait any professional photographer ever took of you? It might, of course, be the only time a paid snapper made you their subject. So maybe this is your chance to make the best of your ordeal at the police station. Which brings us to these 1950s mug shots of Fresno cross-dressers. They are delightful and not the least bit unflattering.
