Hanging History books

During 1830-1913, a total of 93 men and one woman were executed in Brisbane and Queensland. Our 'Hanging in Queensland' range covers every story, every crime, and every hanging from the days when the shadow of the gallows fell across Brisbane, Toowoomba, Rockhampton and Maryborough.
