Adam Worth was an American criminal, oft dubbed 'the Napoleon of Crime'. In about 1869 he moved to England, and continued his exploits there. He organised a criminal network that perpetrated robberies, and had escaped from SingSing prison in America at one time during his early career. He had a long and exciting career that would probably make a good book and movie. (There is apparently one movie, Harry and Walter Go To New York but it is not based on reality.)
Worth is believed to have been the inspiration for Conan Doyle's Professor Moriarty, nemesis of Sherlock Holmes. He is highly intelligent, a worthy adversary for Holmes. I think Worth would have loved to be portrayed as someone who could almost foil even the master of detectives.
Professor Moriarty from The Final Problem. By Sidney Paget.

Macavity the Mystery Cat in TS Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats (Later the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Cats) is also based on Worth.
Of course there are no photos of him, for he is never to be found. Just a few photos of humans in cat suits pretending to be him.
