Leg irons, rusted. Presumed nineteenth century era.

    Details

    • Collection Type:Government

    Description

    Leg irons, badly corroded in two (2) parts.

    One part is made up of two curved pieces of iron with a central hinge to bring them together in a ring. There are two loops of iron at the other ends that would fix together with a padlock or similar.

    The other piece is the same; two curved pieces of iron with a central hinge fused by corrosion.

    Reportedly found in the well located in the Newcastle Gaol courtyard.  The well had been filled in; South Fremantle High School students excavated the old well in the Gaol courtyard in 1977 - 78.
