Artist's Description

Adelaide Gaol – located Adelaide, South Australia

This gaol contains some of the oldest remaining colonial public buildings in Adelaide. Between its opening in 1840 and closure in 1988, the Adelaide Gaol housed approximately 300,000 prisoners.

Between 1840 and 1964 there were 45 executions at Adelaide Gaol including one woman, Elizabeth Woolcock. Prior to November 1840, executions in Adelaide were held in public in the park lands or at the North Terrace Barracks.

Architecturally the Adelaide Gaol is important, for until 4 February 1988 when if officially closed, it was the oldest radially designed gaol remaining in use in Australia.
