To 'clean up society' the British aristocracy shipped not only the 'real' criminals to Australia, but many petty thieves too. As a reminder of these events Campbell Town has a large number of bricks embedded in the street paths. My maternal family is Squire, so this name carries some poignancy.
The 'Anna Maria 1852' refers to one of the many ships that transported these folk to Australia in the early to mid 1800's.

Sheffield in England spells 'steel', but in Tasmania it spells 'murals'. Lots of them!

Looking like a cross between an Anteater and a porcupine is this Echidna. In this shot he is looking for cover as he has realized that there are 'enemies' about. He does this by burying himself in the dirt.

JBS-AUSTRALIA-32
The classic cottage view in Strahan at dusk, and below, Strahan harbour. Both are Photomerge shots in that they are three images stitched together. If I'd have gone for four, you'd have seen both my ears.

This is spot sits centrally on the west coast of Tasmania and is known as Hell's Gates, the entrance to
Macquarie Harbour.
Many of Britain's more notorious criminals passed through this narrow gap on their way to their island imprisonment at the penal colony on Sarah Island. Others died when their ship sank nearby.

Above and right, a pair of Port Arthur images where British 'criminals' were transported in an attempt to 'clean up' England in the early 1800's.
Some were criminals but a majority of the crimes were trivial, and the punishment didn't come close to matching the offence.
