Another post in the same month, wow we are on a roll! So in contining our trip around Tassie and giving you all a taste of what we experienced the last place we ventured into on Day 2 of Tassie in Hobart was the Cambell street Penitenary. Actually we barely made it in time as their tour had already started but I was taking some pics outside and the guide saw a flash and came out and graciously let us in. It was a very imformed tour and took some time, but really sheds some light on our correctional system of that time period.
this is a mask cast of a prisioner that was formed just prior to his hanging. they used to do that instead of taking photographes so the families would have a image of their deceased family member. (nice of them hey??) Seeing all these sort of things really brings the situation to reality.it's not a fictional story but somebody's life story.
The hanging spot. many a life was ended right here.
Inside this sandstone heritage building you get to see a model of how the building was used. Not only was it a prison that extended orginally 3 blocks but it had a courthouse and also a chapel with those prisioners who were awaiting their trial housed under the courthouse. Here is a model of what the building orginally looked like.
While driving around Hobart during our stay there we also sited various history spots like the kangaroo Point Lookout which was a miltary gun security watchpoint.
I just adored driving around Hobart and I never saw one ugly house. so well preserved and so tidy. Here is a LO that I've done to preserve the memory.
Before I finish this post of Tassie Trip down memory lane let me share another LO from my Nana album. the LO was inspired by a LO I saw in a ck mag.
and another that I did just recently using a sketch by Jody from Scraplounge. It features Little Alexis, a little girl we've inherited as part of my son's new forming family to which they will add another child in January.
and another OTP using the latest 'Deck the Halls' kaiser pp's.
Okay scrappers a shorter post than usual for me but time is a bit tight at the moment. Will drop by soon and do another. Hi to my friend Diana who will be back by now from her own Tassie experience!
Take care everyone and God Bless
