Advertisements, broadsides and wanted posters for alleged criminals have a long history.[1] Prior to photography woodcuts and engravings were used showing the person wanted along with a textual description. The organisation requesting information was usually a governmental organization or a police authority but a whole range of other private companies and vigilante groups were also involved. With the advent of photography the likenesses of the person sought presumably increased as likenesses became more accurate. The police and security services use sheets of suspects at demonstrations and the pages produced of Twenty Wanted Anarchist Women [Moscow] in 1890s Imperial Russia are essentially the same as that used by the British Public Order Intelligence Unit for a 2005 event.

Monitoring suspects 
One of the most famous wanted broadsides was that seeking the apprehension of those involved in the assassination of President Lincoln. Some versions of the broadside, which was printed with the words $100,000 Reward! The Murderer Of our late beloved President, Abraham Lincoln, included three albumen prints of Booth, Surratt, and Herold.[2]  
Broadside for Capture of Booth, Surratt, and Herold, April 20, 1865] 
The information on printed materials for alleged criminals is usually, an image, identification details and name when available, offence, reward and who to contact.
