Also in the 19th century, police visited prisons and inspected prisoners to remember their faces and appearance. This was, perhaps, the first time of legal surveillance of something or anyone in the history.However, the official history of video surveillance began just over 100 years ago, when the Holloway prison began to use the «modern photographic monitoring» system. Police secretly photographed suspects and prisoners from a long distance. They try to avoid open shooting because it was just enough to cover your face with your hands or put on your headdress. For example, the suffragettes did this. They refused to be photographed at the time of arrest — made faces, refused to stand still and covered their faces.
