Last Prison Standing: A Short History of Boggo Road's No.2 Division 1903-89


''Division' is the last prison prison left standing on the Boggo Road reserve, and it has stood for over a century. Originally a state-of-the-art women's prison, 2 Division became one of the most notorious male prisons in Australian history before it  closed in 1989. Written as a guide for museum visitors, this book provides a concise and informative history of the prison and those inside it.'
