It Ain't Qantas


Gail and I would love to emigrate to Sydney. But I don't think we would enjoy the method these people went by; transportation. A lot of museums across Nottingham had free entry today, so we went to the Galleries of Justice, in the Lace Market. The former court and prison buildings have been turned into a museum about crime and punishment in the county. If you were lucky you spent six months on a prison ship sailing to Australia for several years servitude. If you were unlucky, you were hung. And some of the crimes were really petty like stealing a hankie.
