Perth and Fremantle
Location: Perth, AustraliaThe modern city of Perth contrasts with the preservation of the old and historic buildings of the port of Fremantle

The old mint, an old building survives! Buildings of ten years or more are thought to be old and need to be demolished.

The Roundhouse Gaol, built to house the unruly convicts. Fremantle's policy is to preserve the old and there are many historic buildings here on the heritage trail.
The curfew bell which came from England in 1858 along with the convicts. The sign adjacent tells how it came from the Coseley parish church, where we were married, many years later of course.

The World Heritage site of the Fremantle Gaol. The prison was decommissioned in 1991.
The conventional cell...
And an example of a cell decorated with art work. As part of their rehabilitation, inmates were encouraged to paint. So they did. There is a separate art gallery of the art work but every inch of several cells is covered with detailed paintings.
