Richmond Goal, (4) Tasmania

Inside the cooks kitchen.










The bread bin.


Well worn steps.


To clean the boots outside the gaol.


The keys to the goal.

  2. Fascinating stuff here ... don't think I'd like to cook in the kitchen though!

    What a lot of keys, obviously needed at the time!

    All the best Jan

  4. Very worn masonry steps always set my imagination running. The kitchen fire place certainly had lots of use.

  6. I love looking at old machinery and stuff, but I'm glad I don't have to live in those times. I'm such a wuss about hard work.
    The back wall of that fireplace looks like it's ready to collapse.

    1. No it wouldn't have done, for the chimney's would have been built correctly back then.

  9. That key collection resembles a "puzzle" in one of those escape games that are popular at the moment.

    1. Large keys are always old - remember having a large key for the door years ago.
