Convict Built

This is a fuller shot of the detail from last week.
Well Done to Julie in identifying the Powder Magazine on Goat Island.
One terrible story was that a convict,Charles Anderson, was chained to a rock near here for two years. Other prisoners were forbidden to talk to him, but managed to throw him some scraps of food.
The walls in this magazine are so thick the temperature inside remains steady, whatever the season.


  1. There are some pretty gruesome tales of early convict life here in Australia, harsh times! Still Wednesday here in Perth..odd!

  2. Great pics but the first thing I noticed is the beautiful and impressive blog background

    and theme.... great blog
